More Google Glass EE non-consumer features: foldable, rugged

More Google Glass EE non-consumer features: foldable, rugged

The next Google Glass is truly shaping up to be different from the Google Glass that everyone once knew and criticized. Although it will still be visibly identifiable as Google Glass, with that conspicuous prism glass on only one side of the eyewear, the smart glasses is undergoing rather drastic changes both within and without to make it more viable as a workplace accessory instead of a simple consumer product. And to make that happen, Google is making Glass more resistant to the forces of nature and man, and making it also a bit more portable.

Google Glass 2 coming in 2016, but not for you

Google Glass 2 coming in 2016, but not for you

The second big release for Google Glass is on its way, but not in the way the remaining "Glass for Fun" enthusiasts might've hoped. Instead it would seem that those pushing for an enterprise angle for the headset have gotten their wish. This second-generation Google Glass won't be built for the public. It'll be built for businesses. While the possibility remains that Glass for Fun could pop up, for now it's more of a pipe dream for the average citizen and lover of leisure.

Samsung wearable to beat HoloLens with 3D-cam and 2x Glass

Samsung wearable to beat HoloLens with 3D-cam and 2x Glass

Samsung may be next on the list of hardware companies to deliver a smart headset with dual-Google Glass-like displays, 3D cameras, and augmented reality/holography. This device does not yet have a formal name, instead opting in early registration documents as a "wearable display apparatus" only. The image you see before you is not the same as Samsung's earlier Google Glass competitor seen back in January of 2014 - this headset is brand new. It's wireless, and it's sporting virtual imagery the likes of which we've never seen before.

Google Glass successor to sport larger prism, Intel chip

Google Glass successor to sport larger prism, Intel chip

Google probably doesn't have the word "quit" in its vocabulary. After the lukewarm, almost negative, reception of Google Glass, the tech giant seems to be well on the way in making a second one. But this time, instead of trying to appeal to the fickle and vocal masses, Google Glass 2 will instead be marketed to the enterprise, hence its other monitor of Google Glass Enterprise Edition. But more than just a name change, this version will have rather substantial changes, including a wider viewing glass and a switch to an Intel processor.

Seriously, Google wants to put remotes on your eyes and teeth

Seriously, Google wants to put remotes on your eyes and teeth

A patent revealed this week suggests that not only is Google still working on smart contact lenses, they've got all kinds of body-mountable devices on the books. While we've not heard from Google about this Google X project since March - and even then just inside another patent - it's clear that there's work being done behind the scenes. This particular patent doesn't concentrate so much on the health-monitoring aspects of the lens, instead focusing on the user interface. Instead of working on your glucose, these devices will change the channel on your television.

Looks like Google Glass 2, but it’s not for you

Looks like Google Glass 2, but it’s not for you

This morning an FCC listing for what appears to be Google Glass 2 has appeared. But it doesn't matter. The first version of Google Glass was a hit on the tech news circuit - people even spend a bunch of cash to be the first to own the device. But it didn't work out in ideal a fashion as Google had hoped. Unchecked enthusiasm and a never-ending stream of stories about Glass-holes made sure of that. The second edition of this device won't be made for the average consumer.

Apple Watch requirements: lower friction, faster access

Apple Watch requirements: lower friction, faster access

The Apple Watch has been launched today - more or less - and is being proliferated around the world through the eyes and ears of onlookers. While some consumers have gotten their devices, most of the population of the world has yet to jump aboard the smartwatch train - or even the wearables train. As such, we've had a talk with Andrej Kostresevic, CEO for Nomads, about what it'll take to bring the smartwatch to the public, starting with the idea that Android Wear has a "lack of friction" and the idea that Google Glass "failed."

Google Glass v2 in works confirms Luxottica (and v3, too)

Google Glass v2 in works confirms Luxottica (and v3, too)

Google Glass version 2, hopefully without the sort of styling only a geek could love and more everyday functionality, is already in progress, Google's eyewear partner has confirmed. The head-worn wearable's demise in its Explorer Edition form was heralded by some as an admission that the project was a failure, but Google insisted that a phased roadmap was always the intention. Now, one of the key players involved in that roadmap has spoken up.

Google Glass patent shows split hardware, ‘normal’ form-factor

Google Glass patent shows split hardware, ‘normal’ form-factor

Choose whatever reason you like — it looked weird, got too much attention, or just plain didn’t catch on — Google Glass is pretty much dead and buried. Version one is, at least. Showing they may not be done with wearables just yet, a new patent has surfaced which might show the direction Google is headed with Glass. Though it hasn’t changed much, the core hardware is being split up; likely a response to those who weren’t comfortable with a head-mounted camera ready to shoot.
