We haven’t heard much about Google Glass recently, at least not from Google and not during the company’s I/O developer conference in late May. The project isn’t dead — some form of the wearable passed through the FCC recently. It’s now under the guidance of Nest’s Tony Fadell inside Google, where it’s being tweaked and worked on. Fresh news suggests that another edition is on its way, and it’s currently dubbed “Enterprise Edition.”
According to 9to5Google, Google is testing several prototypes of the new Glass internally. Tweaks have been made for “moderate” improvements in battery life, which may come as a disappointment for folks who were wishing for a longer lasting version of Glass. Google is apparently also working on an external battery pack. Additionally, the new models are said to sport an Intel Atom processor and a larger glass prism — the piece that extends over a user’s eye —and 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi support.
No word on when the new Google Glass will make a public appearance, if ever, but we’re glad to hear things are still rolling along with the project.
