Two and a half years after Google Glass waqs introduced to the public, Google announced that the project isn't dead. The giant has just been redeveloping the technology making it a practical workplace tool that saves time and money. It is now aimed at the enterprise sector and, specifically at factory workers.
Dubbed Google Glass Enterprise Edition (EE), the headset has been tested and deployed across many factories in the United States by companies such as Boeing, GE, and DHL.
"Workers in many fields, like manufacturing, logistics, field services, and healthcare find it useful to consult a wearable device for information and other resources while their hands are busy," wrote project lead Jay Kothari.
"That's why we've spent the last two years working closely with a network of more than 30 expert partners to build customised software and business solutions for Glass for people in these fields."
The new headset still resembles the original model but has a better camera (with resolution upgraded from 5 megapixels to 8), extended battery life, faster Wi-Fi and processor, and a new red light that turns on when recording video. The electronics of Glass have also been made modular in the shape of a so-called Glass Pod, which can be detached and reattached to Glass-compatible frames, which can include things like safety goggles and prescription glasses.
