Google Glass Enterprise Edition: rugged, folding frame

We’re still not yet at that point where everyone is demanding for a consumer-friendly version of Google Glass, possibly because it is not yet ready for mass marketing. But what we do have now is a slightly improved version of the Explorer Edition, or what is being referred to as the Enterprise Edition, that is being targeted for working professionals looking at playing around with Google’s wearable. It’s not the Google Glass 2.0 some have been waiting for, but at least it’s something.

Next Google Glass in the works, might have an external batt, run Intel Atom CPU

The Google Glass Project is not totally over. The search giant is already working on the next version which we expect will be better than ever. So far, we learned that Italian eyewear company Luxottica started working on the next Google Glass. We also know that it will be an “Enterprise Edition” and it will be powered by an unknown Intel Atom processor. All these we learned after the Google Glass division went under new management earlier this year.

Epson puts out Moverio Pro BT-2000 smart AR glasses

Google wasn’t the first one to jump on the “smart eyewear” bandwagon, not by a long shot. Before Google Glass was there, Epson had already put out the Moverio BT-100. It upgraded that to the BT-200, making the pair of augmented reality (AR) glasses that we all wished Google Glass would become (we all wished in vain, of course). Now it’s adding another product to this line, not necessarily for the regular consumers – the Epson Moverio Pro BT-2000 has the industry professional firmly in mind.

Google Expeditions announced, brings classes to a virtual field trip with Cardboard

The Google Glass Project may be over but Google still has the Cardboard program. A couple of days ago we mentioned that Google is finally getting serious with virtual reality during the I/O 2015 and here it is. Google is bringing the Cardboard into classrooms by introducing the new Google Expeditions pack. It’s a special kit for teachers and educators that contains everything they need to bring their class on a field trip—at least in virtual reality. This brings virtual reality experience to the students and teachers who don’t have the means to go on a real field trip in a far away place.

Italian eyewear company Luxottica working on next Google Glass

So we all know what happened – earlier this year, Google basically pulled the plug on what was viewed as a failed path for its Google Glass project. The gadget, with great early hype, spiraled down quickly into “jerk device” and intrusion of privacy issues. The project was brought back to the drawing board, and a separate team was told to make it ready for the public. It’s not quite there, but Italian eyewear makers Luxottica entering the picture might be progress.

Sony’s attachable smart eyewear module better than Google Glass?

Sony’s “SmartEyeglass Attach!” debuted at CES 2015 in Las Vegas just a few weeks back, the second eyewear technology that Sony has outed to public in recent months. Nobody can deny that it was Google Glass that pioneered this type of wearable smart technology – but as Google Glass is reconsidering its marketing strategy, Sony might have a prime contender in the SmartEyeglass Attach! to take its place.

Last chance to buy Google Glass from Google

An era, short as it was, is coming to a close. At the end of the day, Google Glass will be no more. At least the Google Glass that is being offered on Google Play Store. It also marks the formal end of Google Glass' Explorer program, which means that the smart eyepiece as we know it is, for all intents ans purposes, practically dead. Of course, Google officially isn't calling it quits on the idea and simply calls this a "graduation" of the device.

Google Glass under new management: Tony Fadell, CEO of Nest

Google Glass is flying to a new nest - that nest being Tony Fadell, co-founder and CEO of Google-owned smart thermostat group Nest. Google Glass jumped out of the experimental Google X division Thursday and on to Fadell’s list of responsibilities. Almost exactly a year ago, Google bought out Nest for $3.2 billion. Maybe Fadell can use his management skills to boost something new and make a comeback with Glass.
