Google Glass Headed To Factories

Google Glass Headed To Factories

Google unveiled Project Glass back in 2012. The program ended in early-2015 and later that year, Google revealed they were working on a revamp. Now the augmented reality glasses may be getting their second chance in the factory space. The company is working on an Enterprise Edition of the product targeted at manufacturing. Current customers include Boeing, GE, and DHL with more expected to adopt the technology in the coming years. The new version of Glass includes an upgraded camera, longer battery life, improved WiFi connectivity, and a red light that comes on during recording. Additionally, the new version is designed to be attached to safety glasses which are commonly worn by factory workers. Is this the future of Google Glass?
