Look inside Google's toy shop

From self-driving cars to smart contact lenses, Google's got a lot going one besides software.

Glass

Google Glass is still technically in beta mode, but the company announced Wednesday that the wearable computing device is once again available to the public (for $1,500).

Unlike much of its other devices, Google built Glass in-house. Glass mounts on a pair of compatible glasses and positions a small display above the user's right eye. It's controlled via voice commands and a tiny touch pad on the side. The device gives users access to the Internet, directions, notifications and content from custom apps on the screen. There's also a small camera on the lens, which nicely ups the creep factor.
