What is so futuristic and simplistic in Google glass’s function is that it takes away most of the hands-on activities one would normally do, and it also eliminates the need for a number of devices needed for different kinds of occasions. The Glass can simply take a picture with your command, it can live-record what one sees at the particular moment hands-free, and can also function as a real-live and real-time GPS navigation system.

In terms of communication, it records voice and converts it into a text message later to be sent; in addition to that it translates one’s voice into another language and also ‘googles’ whatever information one asks for. All with the use of the explorer’s voice command.
