It is no surprise that technology is changing and everyday we are hearing about new exciting products that will hit the market. Last week it was all about the Amazon smart phone, which is a smart phone that can do almost anything. We have also heard about a smart watch, being able to do all the things that you can do on a smart phone, but by using a watch. This week it is all about the Google Glass, which is powered by Android and produced by Google. The Google Glass is a piece of eyewear which has a small screen on one side which you can view lots of information through. The Google Glass has such advanced technology that it can view what you are looking at and it can return information, such as detecting a foreign language and translating it for you or telling you what year the Statue of Liberty was built. The Google Glass is also great to have for navigation and directions. You can make calls whilst using the Google Glass and you can send messages without having to use your phone.

The Google Glass can also be used as a simple bluetooth headset when being used with a phone that is compatible with bluetooth.
