Along with the new video that we pointed out earlier, the company has released some cool new Google Glass pictures. One of the photos shows something we haven’t seen before; on the inside of the eye-boom there is a vertical slit with what appears to be some sort of sensor inside:

My best guess is that it’s a proximity sensor which tells Glass when you have it on your face. This would allow it to turn the display off to save battery life when you aren’t using it. However, it could just as easily be an ambient light sensor or even a camera to detect eye-movement. We can only guess until detailed specifications are released.
