The specs for the first version of Google Glass are out: the device can take 5MP photos and record 720p video, has Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi radios, and 16GB of storage. Google (GOOG +0.5%) claims a battery life of 1 day with normal use, and states viewing Glass' display is equal to watching a 25" HD screen from 8 feet away. Google has also begun rolling out Glass apps in Google Play, and has prohibited developers (for now, at least) from including ads in their apps, or charging for them. Himax (HIMX +7.7%), a rumored Glass supplier, seems to be getting a lift. (previous)

    It's going to end just like the "opti-grab" invention in TheJerk. Everyone's going to end up crossed-eyed and Google's empire will come crashing down!
