Google I never really realised this, but it wasn't actually known what operating system powered Glass. "We suspected it from the outset, but up until now, we haven't actually heard it confirmed from the mouth of a Google honcho: Google Glass runs on Android. The tidbit was dropped on today's earnings call, with CEO Larry Page uttering: 'Obviously, Glass runs on Android, so [Android] has been pretty transportable across devices, and I think that will continue.' The response was given to a question regarding engagement increment, but Page stopped short of divulging details about version type."

I thought it was blatantly obvious... just never publicly stated or confirmed. Until now.

Well, Glass is so different that Google could have based it on ChromeOS to avoid all the patent hassles, but I guess they bought Motorola for that and don't seem to care .. ballsy.
