Google Glass Explorer Edition Passes Through The FCC

Posted Feb 2, 2013

The Google Glass Explorer Edition hardware is expected to arrive this year and it will have a Broadcom 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g WiFi radio and Bluetooth 4.0 + LE module built-in.  There is also a reference to an “integral vibrating element that provides audio to the user via contact with the user’s head.”  It is likely that this is related to a bone conduction patent that Google filed earlier this month.  The FCC filing also reveals that the conduction technology is used to view video with audio.  [Source: FCC via Engadget]
