Google Glass 2.0 is real, and here are photos to prove it

Photos that Google filed with the FCC show the device inside and out.


The next generation of Google Glass, Google's head-mounted wearable display, is the real deal.


A filing to the Federal Communications Commission, the U.S. government body that must review and approve personal electronics like phones and wearables, reveals photos of the device's external design, along with internal circuitry (see below) and also a basic user manual. The filing also includes a statement on company letterhead authorizing a third party to help get Google through the FCC's authorization process.


A new edition of Google Glass signals a possible new direction for the company's stalled and stagnant wearable, especially if it winds up in use as a business tool rather than as product for everyday buyers, as blog 9-to-5 Google reports.


Named as model GG1 on the FCC documents, the device appears to hew closely to the original Google Glass Explorer Edition. In other words, it will look like a set of eyeglass frames with a screen floating above your eye.
A previous patent from November depicts a version of Glass that looks like a squiggle of a device that would hug only half your head. Google apparently isn't ready for that future of Glass yet.

These photos show internal and external designs of a wearable suspected to be the next generation of Google Glass.
Google; Screenshots compiled by Jessica Dolcourt/CNET Unconfirmed rumors from 9-to-5 Google and The Wall Street Journal suggest that the new edition of Google Glass will have a larger prism, a sturdier design and include an Intel Atom processor. It could sell directly to businesses.
Google Glass has had a rough ride so far. Launched in 2012 for developers and then in 2013 for buyers, Google Glass was widely received as expensive and invasive, the latter because people feared they were being photographed or recorded without knowledge or permission. Google stopped selling its first Glass edition in January 2015.
Google did not respond to a request for comment for this report.

Google Wants To Forget It Ever Tried to Sell Humans Google Glass



After many months of silence, Google’s finally scrubbed the internet clean of its weird wearable consumer experiment known as Google Glass. Spotted by 9to5Google, Glass-related accounts on Google+, Twitter, and Instagram have been shutdown with only Google+ giving any kind of parting farewell:

Hi Explorers, we’ve had a blast hanging out with you on G= throughout the Explorer Program. From now on, if you have any questions about your Glass, you can get in touch with us here.
With its social death, Google Glass’ public face turns inward, and the implication doesn’t need too much explaining right? Glass never should have been presented as a consumer technology—not even close. Indeed, its consumer flirtation in the form of the problem-riddled Explorer Program begat assaults and creepy invasions of privacy—and more importantly, it didn’t garner lasting interest from most people, despite a lot of early curiosity. In other words, it was a catastrophic failure.

Though the company seems to have abandoned any short-term hope for consumer Glass, Google’s actually launching into a new era with the tech, in the form of an Enterprise Edition model, now under the direction of the new Project Aura. In the waning days of 2015, Google outed the new-but-not-really-that-new design for the specs in an FCC filing. Problems remain, though, and it seems clear that bringing Glass into the workplace doesn’t necessarily make it a magically successful idea.

If you’re one of the few individuals who felt destined to plant the Google Glass flag into the topsoil of some unexplored technological tundra, Google’s just left you out in the cold.

Google Glass makes return with updated Enterprise Edition model





One month after the original Google Glass got an unexpected software update, an all-new Google Glass model has been revealed.
Google Glass is back with Glass Enterprise Edition, a new version of Alphabet’s smart headwear that’s focused on the workplace. This updated Glass Enterprise Edition offers better Wi-Fi compared to the original model as well as a faster processor and extended battery life. Its camera has been upgraded from 5 megapixels to 8 megapixels, too, and there’s now a red light that comes on when the camera is recording video.
Alphabet says that it’s been working with select partners to test Glass Enterprise Edition over the past couple of years, adding that the results have been positive. GE mechanics use Glass to view instructions with images and animations, which has increased efficiency since they no longer have to stop work to check their binders. DHL says that Glass has increased supply chain efficiency by 15 percent because workers now get real-time instructions about where to place items, complete with visual aids.
Glass Enterprise Edition is now in use at more than 50 companies, and Alphabet says that it’s now making the device available to even more businesses through its partner program. There’s no word on how much the new model of Glass costs.
The original Google Glass was a neat idea, but it failed to catch on with the public, probably at least in part due to its $1500 price tag. Glass seems suited for work, though, with large companies that can afford to pay for the hardware and employees that can benefit from having a display in their sight and their hands free. Unfortunately for Glass fans, there’s no mention of a public release for this updated model, so you’ll have to get a job at GE, DHL, Volkswagen, or one of the other Glass partners if you want to try it out.
