Google Glass has moved a step closer to reality after details and diagrams were filed at the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The Google Glass diagram filed with the FCC.
Developers at the event were forbidden from talking to the media and had to sign a non-disclosure agreement to participate, so the FCC filing is our best look yet at the technical details behind the project.
The filing is for the Explorer Edition hardware, which is what Google will provide to developers who pre-ordered devices at Google I/O last year. Certification details for the Bluetooth module included the diagram pictured above.
Unfortunately, that's the only image of the actual device in these filings. Google filed a request with the FCC asking for short-term confidential treatment of a number of items, including external photos, test set-up photos, internal photos and the user manual. Google's request means that we won't see that information for at least 180 days.
With FCC certification, Google Glass is ever closer to becoming a reality.
