Google Glass Explorer Edition undergoes FCC testing

updated 03:58 pm EST, Thu January 31, 2013

Developer edition of Project Glass expected in next few months

Google's head-mounted display, Google Glass, has made it's way to the Federal Communications Commission. The developer's edition of the headset, Google Glass Explorer Edition, has appeared in filings at the FCC, suggesting that those who paid for the $1,500 display will be receiving them in the coming months.

Specifications for the project continues to be elusive, though the tests carried out by the FCC confirm it has a Bluetooth 4.0+LE module and a Broadcom 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi radio, according to Engadget. It is also noted that the technology detailed in the bone-conductive audio patent application is being used in the device, as a video was watched with audio being supplied to the wearer through the vibration transducer system.

An interview with Google's Barbak Parviz earlier this month claimed that many aspects of the Glass design were still being worked on. Though the images in the FCC filing show very little in terms of the final design, it is still seen to retain the one-sided design as seen in promotional videos and photos in the past.
