Google has not yet provided precise details of the type of processor and the amount of RAM that there will be in the new solution of augmented reality.Now a developer sheds light on these details.
Jay Lee, one of the developers to already have access to Google Glass, revealed important new details about the hardware specifications of the new device Google. The latter would have, in fact, a CPU of the type OMAP 4430, similar to that used in the original Kindle, and a quantity equal to682 MB of RAM.
Details are still rather skinny, but seen in the news that Google, in time to publish the specifications of Google Glass, did not provide full information about CPU and RAM. Also, it seems a hardware equipment much more powerful than originally budgeted, which could allow the glasses to perform fairly complex app without the help of the support device.
Lee also argues that there could be even more memory in the final version of the Glass, even up to 1 GB. "Some kernel messages lead me to believe that there is actually 1 GB of RAM, but a part is used for purposes not known hardware", we read of Selfscreens .
These revelations have been made possible following the announcement of one of the most famous hackers in the community, Liam McLoughlin, who revealed that he had obtainedpermission to root the Google Glass. McLoughlin said that getting these permits is very easy.
According to McLoughlin, the Glass would offer the option "debug mode" apperentemente that would offer the opportunity to access the ADB level. Subsequently a Google employee has made it clear that, although the hacker has spoken of "ease in getting root permissions", there is no security problem. Dan Morrill, the employee in question has in fact said that this first version of Glass is deliberately open to allow developers to browse and experience different types of solution-level app.
In recent weeks, had emerged information about secret code that would suggest innovative solutions for gaming Google Glass .
