Is This the New Google Glass?

Is This the New Google Glass?

You’re looking at what could be the future design for Google’s Glass project. A slew of new photos were posted to the FCC’s website yesterday, and with that came some interesting new speculation on the future of face computers.

 

On the outside, the design looks roughly the same, with some notable changes – it’s foldable, which is a definite improvement over the previous design, and includes a larger prism for better interaction with your notifications. According to 9to5Google, the internal upgrades revolve around an Intel Atom processor, faster 5GHz WiFi connectivity, and a much-needed improvement to battery life. Unfortunately, it seems this particular Glass design won’t be destined for consumers, even though it’s been almost 2 years since the original was met with lukewarm reception.

With the ever-increasing popularity of wearable tech like smartwatches, is it time for people to embrace smartglasses too? Google’s early concept video certainly makes it seem pretty amazing, although the reality has yet to meet expectations.
