Google Glass passes sound through your bones, not conventional speakers

Vyralize: According to a recent FCC filing, Google Glass will use a ‘vibrating element’ to transmit sound to your body via your bones. (Gadgets, Google, Google Glass, Hi-tech)

The technology is based on how snakes hear.

About 20 years ago, our local zoo built a reptile exhibit and they had a thing where you could listen to some dialogue about how snakes utilize vibrations by putting your chin on a piece of metal and plugging your ears.

It was really cool!

Damn this is cool, but yea, the whole traveling in a car or train could be an issue.

took 14 years for real life to catch up to video games.

Snake had something like this 14 years ago, i just hope they haven't also made a giant nuclear capable walking battle tank. O_O
