Google Next-gen Glass Edition 2

Next-Gen Google Wearable Glasses is ready for Business

Augmented Reality has already gotten into our life in the forms of simulated experiment and education app, but Google is taking it several steps higher with Google Glass. Glass Enterprise Edition has helped workers in a variety of industries from logistics, to manufacturing, to field services do their jobs more efficiently by providing hands-free access to the information and tools they need to complete their work

Workers can use Glass to access checklists, view instructions or send inspection photos or videos, and our enterprise customers have reported faster production times, improved quality, and reduced costs after using Glass.

This glass is very effective and makes all the work easy. It helps a lot in business and makes advancement in employees working. It’s truly what we called vision, and it’s absolutely possible given the fact that Google’s co-founder, Sergey Brim has with skydivers and creatives.

Its first version is very expensive, so that was only available to some developers with the price tag of $1500, but expect other tech companies trying it out and building an affordable consumer version. So the developers made this new version for the compatibility of users.

But now its second edition is cheaper and its cost is $999. This Glass Enterprise 2 edition is built on the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 platform, which features a significantly more powerful multicore CPU and a new artificial intelligence engine. That brings faster performance, particularly for AI, but it also promises “significant power savings” that lead to longer battery life important when you might need Glass for hours at a time.

 It looks the same from the first enterprise-focused variant that launched following the end of the Explorer Edition. But it has some advancements. It has an 8-megapixel camera with 80-degree FOV remains in the same position as before with privacy LED for the camera and to denote power on the rear. USB-C charges the 820mAh battery with fast charge available. It also improved camera performance and quality, which builds on Glass’s existing first-person video streaming and collaboration features. Other specs include a single 6-axis Gyro and 3-axis Mag, as well as water and dust resistance. Glass will be “easier to develop for and deploy” by being leveraging Android APIs and Android Enterprise Mobile Device Management for scaled deployments.

Warehouse workers and others in dangerous situations will also be happy to hear that Google has teamed with Smith Optics to create safety frames for a wide range of work. This enables significant power savings, enhanced performance and support for computer vision and advanced machine learning capabilities.

We’ve also partnered with Smith Optics to make Glass-compatible safety frames for different types of demanding work environments, like manufacturing floors and maintenance facilities.
Glass Enterprise Edition 2 is easier to develop for and deploy. It’s built on Android, making it easier for customers to integrate the services and APIs they already use. And in order to support scaled deployments, Glass Enterprise Edition 2 now supports Android Enterprise Mobile Device Management. Google also touts “improved” camera quality for video streaming and collaboration. True to earlier reports, there’s also a USB-C port that can charge faster.
