Google’s postponed Glass project is back- but this time the augemented reality glasses will not be for consumers, according to a news report.
9to5google reports that Google is internally referring to its next iteration of Google Glass as “Enterprise Edition” or “EE”.
The Enterprise Edition includes a larger prism display, as well as an Intel Atom processor that brings better performance and moderately improved battery life.
The larger prism extends further, letting the user look directly up more comfortably, rather than feeling the need to look up and to the right. The Explorer Edition was infamous for eye strain problems after prolonged use, and this change was likely made with that in mind.
This model, if real, would be sold to companies looking to equip their workforce with smarter technology. Instead of receiving tweets, these users would get information related to their job.
Reportedly the new version of Google Glass also sports improved battery life, partly because of the Intel Atom CPU. The specific clock speed is unknown, but this tiny SoC has proven itself by powering most Android Wear devices. The inclusion of an optional battery pack states Google is aiming this device at industries looking for constant all-day use.
