Google Glass specs: 16GB of storage, 5MP camera, and more

Google has been rolling out a variety of Glass-related materials following its announcement on Monday that Explorer edition pairs were in production and some would possibly begin shipping today, with the rest following in waves in the near future. Nearly a year after they were unveiled at Google’s I/O, we finally have a run down of the device’s specsAccording to a Glass support page made public by Google, the device will have a 5-megapixel camera

with up to 720p video recording and 16GB of storage contained in what is said to be a durable frame that is one-size-fits-all (with the aid of adjustable nose pieces). If you’re wondering how the display will look, according to the support pages, it will be fairly pleasant. The display is said to be equivalent to looking at 25-inch high definition television from a distance of 8-feet, meaning it won’t appear terribly large, but certainly won’t have you squinting in an effort to make things out. Audio is delivered via bone conduction, and a single battery charge is said to last all day, so you won’t have to part with the headset halfway through the day to recharge.
Connectivity includes standard 802.11b/g WiFi and Bluetooth, as well as a micro USB port for data transfer and charging (users are advised to use the Glass-specific charger rather than a generic one). Finally, compatibility is with any Android smartphone running 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher, as well as the MyGlass app, which is now available from the Google Play Store.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d

Xarius: Charge Your Mobile From Air

Xarius is a portable energy generator that allows to charge electrical appliances by the use of windpower in areas without electricity. Its lightweight and compact design makes the wind turbine to a perfect companion on backpacking trips with little luggage. It is composed of a foldable three-wing-system and an internal energy generator. The integrated rope makes it easy to adapt to any environment.Hooks are attached to both of its ends to tighten the rope and open the wings at the same time using the resulting tension. For convenient charging the battery is permanently installed, so that the electrical device can be charged inside the tent. The LED on the hook shows the current charge of battery. The pulsating orange indicates that the wind turbine has to recharge. Even at low wind speeds the blades begin to rotate autonomously.
