  • You need to prepare yourself -- one day very soon people are going to be walking down the

  • street wearing Google Glass. And it’s gonna be weird. A select handful of developers and

  • contest winners are just now getting their hands on Google's wearable computer, and details

  • continue to emerge.

  • Google recently posted technical specs for the device.

  • Most of the specs listed were previously announced -- but on the new side of things, the built-in

  • camera in Glass will take 5MP photos, in addition to 720p video. The device will charge via

  • a Micro USB cable, one of which comes with the product, but Google provides a decidedly

  • Vulcan warning to using a third-party option.

  • Quote: "While there are thousands of Micro USB chargers out there, Glass is designed

  • and tested with the included charger in mind. Use it and preserve long and prosperous Glass

  • use."

  • Glass will feature 16GB of Flash storage, 12GB of which is usable and synced to the

  • cloud. The battery is intended to last through a day of "typical use," assuming you're not

  • recording too much video. As far as the resolution of the little display in Glass, Google provided

  • a somewhat awkward answer using relative terms.

  • Quote: "[The] high resolution display is the equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen

  • from eight feet away."

  • So maybe a little like this:

  • Google has outright banned ads in Glass apps, and apparently also forbids developers from

  • charging for Glass apps, which makes one wonder how this entire affair is going to be monetized.

  • It is still unclear how much Google Glass will cost us. The Explorer version for developers

  • costs $1500. The consumer version is expected to be a little less.

  • For more tech news, stay tuned to IGN.
