If you are interested in wearable technology, there’s a new version of Google Glass on its way. The sad news is that it’s not meant for the common mass. According to Recode, Google is giving out a version of its wearable computer, which is work-oriented to its enterprise partners.
The new model will be able to fold up like traditional glasses and be more tough for outdoor use. However it still contains a prism on the upper-right corner, instead of displaying images in the center like some of its rivals. It also boasts of a faster Intel atom processor and battery packs that last longer. It is also equipped with a hinge which can help it attach to different glasses. The prism (the display) is now thinner and can move both horizontally and vertically for adjustment purposes.
If and when everything goes right, Google will have businesses using this new model around the last part of this year, although consumers might have to wait almost a whole year to get this tech in their hands. Thee has been no detail about the pricing and timing of the next update of this tech, but sources expect it to cost well below the $1500 price of the Google Glass 1.0, to stay competitive with other products like Microsoft HoloLens.
