Google this Friday in a blog post at Google+ listed out ten myths people might have about the Google Glass. Google Glass has been around for the last two years and has received some major software and hardware updates. Beginning last year in August, the Glass or Project Glass has been in the hands of 10,000 developers and enthusiasts across the world.
Google stated, Glass is not something that distracts you from the rest of the world, while it only allows you to go free and no to look down at the screen of your device every-time. Working just like a hands-free Google Glass can perform tasks including sending a text and receiving a call or making one.
While Google has not allowed any face recognizing app for the wearable, the company said, people think that a Glass Explorer takes your photograph or records a video. Quoting it the company stated, ” So next time you’re tempted to ask an Explorer if he’s recording you, ask yourself if you’d be doing the same with your phone. Chances are your answers will be the same.”

We would not agree as if it is a ‘myth’, Google Glass, which runs on Android, has been successfully rooted to install face-recognizing apps. Even if its not ‘rooted’, an Explorer can still take your pictures by pressing the button or by saying “OK Google, Take a picture,”.
Google Glass, which is still a prototype, is expected to have a final version of it launched this year at Google I/O. Currently it is priced at $1500 and is only for people chosen to be a part of Google Glass Explorer Program.
Google has also partnered with brands including Ray Ban, to produce frames for the people having prescription lenses and the price for it when it to be launched for public in general is expected to be around $300 or $400.
