Google Glass information released directly from the source back in February. It was the Google created video that offered a look at 'How it Feels (through Glass)' and since then it seems the Glass related talk has accelerated.

Google Glass wasn't already cool enough, today we're finding out that it feature bone conduction technology. The glasses recently made an appearance at the FCC, and the filing for the project mentions "integral vibrating element that provides audio to the user via contact with the user's head."

Google's been busy testing out some neat new gadgets that we all should know by know called Project Glass. These augmented reality type glasses allow users to do all sorts of fun things.

Project Glass is in the news yet again. After earlier we reported on CEO Larry Page wearing them during a conference today, we are now seeing loads of news that Google's protecting their latest creation with a wide array of patents.
