Google Glass Photo Update Brings HDR, Captions

8813578318_8808d2abdb

Google has pushed an update to Google Glass users that upgrades the camera functionality on the device. This update brings HDR capabilities to the device as well as the ability to automatically sense and brighten low-light shots. This update also allows Google Glass to more easily capture photos that have lots of movement.

Aside from improvements to the camera itself, Google has also brought the ability to add captions to photos taken with Google Glass. These captions can be added to photos by a simple voice command.

Glass is a new piece of wearable technology developed by Google. The device is worn like a standard pair of glasses and pairs with the user’s iOS or Android smartphone to connect to the web. You can use the device to send messages and update social feeds with a simple voice command. Glass also has a built-in camera and can run third-party apps that go under the name Glassware.

As of now, Google Glass is only being used by a small number of testers who paid over $1500 to be in the Explorer Program. The device went into the hands of these users in early 2013, though the device was originally announced at Google IO 2012.

    D2H Plans are very costly and they are not giving their attention towards kids in small packages. It means the kids whose parents can’t afford costly D2H packages can’t s see their favorite kid channels.

    Will this ever big a big important tech, or more of an oddity that never really catches on with the majority of people? I myself don’t really see it being as big as the hype currently is.. without some major evolution in the end product

    Google Glass sounds exciting but for 1500 dollars it is a no no
