Google Glass took everyone by surprise when it was revealed at last year’s Google I/O, and quickly became one of the most anticipated pieces of hardware in development. Since then, the company has been working on the hardware and software, while setting up the first hackathons for those who invested in Glass.

Unfortunately, the rest of us will have to wait until Google can get Glass out on the mass market. According to Google’s own Sergey Brin, that might be later this year.

While we wait, check out E.B. Studios‘ latest investigative piece into Glass and the people behind the project. The report also features a Glass mockup created on a 3D printer to better illustrate how one wears the hardware. Check it out:

To learn more about Glass from Google itself, check out this recent TED talk where Google’s Tom Chi spoke on how the company used rapid prototyping to make variations on the hardware.

    Why did the 3D printed mockup have the display situated right in front of the eye? It was pointed out in the video and in lots of other articles that the display will be above the eye, not in front of it.

      Hi Nik,
      I was a creator of the video. Thank you for your support. It may seem that way because of the camera angles but it is a 1:1 of the Glass Explorers Edition. Let me know if that helps!
