Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 AR headset has just been launched for $999. Here's everything you need to know about this, including the specs.
Google has just announced the Google Glass Enterprise Edition for the workplace. Here's everything we know about it.
Apple is testing AR (augmented reality) smart glasses with iPhone connectivity according to a new report. Here's what is known about this project so far.
It now appears that Google Glass: Enterprise Edition is the new wearable on the block, and it's aimed squarely at, you guessed it, the enterprise. It features new foldable design, among other things.
With Google now having killed its Glass wearable off following a less than successful year it seems that everyone is suddenly spouting that it was doomed from the start. Whether they're just kicking Glass while it's down or did truly possess the ability to see into the future is anybody's guess, but one person inside Apple did apparently know that the writing was on the wall for what was a very ambitious project.
Google's firsts attempt at giving the world a wearable computer that lives on your forehead has suffered plenty of cynicism and criticism since it arrived on the noggins of Google's intrepid 'Explorers' but that clearly isn't going to stop the technology giant from pushing forward with new iterations of Glass. A new patent, recently made public but having actually been submitted back in January, appears to show what could be the next version of Glass to come out of Google's design labs.
Google Glass has been in some hot waters lately, with the search giant not having the easiest run with its futuristic gadget. Say what you may, but Google isn't letting its wearable wash away just yet, and is reportedly planning on a next-generation of the wearable with support from Intel.
The movie industry has long been concerned about the issue regarding moviegoers recording a movie using a smartphone, camera or other device. Google Glass, unlike most other camera-equipped gadgets, could be used to record a movie quite unsuspectingly, and as such, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) - the body that represents the major studios - has made a move to completely ban Glass and similar forms of wearable tech in cinemas.
There's good news on the horizon for members of the Google Glass Explorers initiative. As part of the continued development of the internal software that powers Google's intelligent eyewear, the company has introduced a new feature that will allow users to view all phone notifications via Glass. As things stand at the moment, Glass owners are only able to view and interact with notifications that are presented as part of Glass compatible apps. This will be extended to fall in line with the notification-forwarding system that allows Android Wear wearables to receive every notification as it's received on the connected device.
