The Google Glove is filled choke full with electronics. These include cameras on the fingertips, compass, gyroscopes, accelerometers and other motion detectors on the fingers, CPU, a bunch of RAM and storage in the palm of your hand, and (wireless) communication chips on the back. Maybe even a small battery band around your wrist.
After cramming all the necessary detectors and processing electronics inside, the fun with the software begins.
For starters â€“ how about your gloved finger with the high res camera on the tip, acting as a microscope on steroids? Want to explore that chip inside your device in more detail? Just hover your finger over it. Google Glove will record a stream of multiple images of it, stabilize them and combine into one enlarged view. Enhanced with additional information, such as measurements of the chip or a circuit diagram of one or more components.
Use one or two more fingers with cameras on them, and you can generate enlarged and enhanced views of really small 3D objects. Replace some cameras with ultrasound, or other non-visual high penetration transmitters and receivers â€“ and you start seeing inside objects. Add some infrared cameras into the mix, and you have night vision.
