For those who've been anxiously wondering how much storage or what type of camera will come with the much-anticipated release of Google Glass, the tech giant has announced the specifications for the computer-enabled "smart" glasses.

The prototype models of Glass -- which are already starting to ship to winners of Google's "Glass Explorer" contest -- will come with a total of 16 GB storage, meaning after pre-loaded software they will have 12 GB of usable memory. The lenses themselves will feature high resolution displays, which Google says will be the equivalent of looking at a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away.

Glass will also come with a 5-megapixel camera and be able to capture video at 720p resolution, Google says. Additionally, a fully charged battery should last one full day under typical use. Some features, of course, such as Google Hangouts and video recording, will be more battery intensive.
