Now the reality of Google’s wearable computer is beginning to take shape, with the search giant releases the official specifications. Apparently, the screen is equivalent to a 25-inch monitor in front of your eye, the battery will last for a day, there is 12GB of storage augmented by Google Drive and bone-conduction audio.
