Have you ever wondered how Google Glass works? Sure, we all know it’s a wearable computer that displays information on a small glass panel over the eye, but do you really know how it works? Do you know the science behind Glass, and how it works with our eyes?
If you find yourself asking these questions, check out this new infographic from Martin Missfeldt. It explains the science of Glass, as well as the science of our eyes, in an easy to understand way.
What many people may not realize is that Glass doesn’t display information via a screen, but rather projects light directly into the eye. That is how those wearing Glass are able to see the real world with only a small layer of augmented reality content overlapping everything else.
Unfortunately, the effect is lessened for those wearing glasses as lenses dissipate light, including the light projected from Glass. I guess that’s what futuristic contact lenses and brain interfaces are for.[h/t: Mashable]
