Google Glass is reborn with improved Enterprise Edition

Google's revolutionary futuristic looking smart connected eye-wear Google Glass was introduced in 2013, and was made available for the public in 2014. Unfortunately, it wasn't very successful, as it received a great deal of criticism and legislative action due to privacy and safety concerns, and the company discontinued the product in 2015.

That said, Google is back with the second iteration of the wearable dubbed Google Glass Enterprise Edition, and the search-giant this time is focusing on the enterprise segment instead of public.

Google says that the Google Glass Enterprise Edition was already being used and tested by hundreds of employees at companies like GE, Boeing, DHL and Volkswagen for the last two years, and will now be available to more businesses.

The Google Glass Enterprise Edition has been developed by Google X, Google's research and development arm. Like the previous iteration, the new version is a small, lightweight wearable computer with transparent display that brings information to the users line of sight. It is also able to snap photos and shoot videos. You can even clip it onto glasses or industry frames like safety goggles.

The second iteration of Google Glass comes with an upgraded hardware like improved camera, powerful processor, better wireless networking and extended battery life. The camera has been upgraded from 5MP to 8MP, and the wearable now offers up to eight hours of battery life. Addressing privacy concerns the new Enterprise edition of Glass gets red LED light that turns on when recording video.

The company has also customized the wearable for worker in industries like manufacturing, logistics, field services and healthcare, so that people can get things done in the workplace easily.

It mentions that workers at AGCO, an agricutural machinery manufacturer, are using the wearble to reduce the work load. It claims that machinery production time have been reduced by25 percent and inspection times by 30 percent, as the Glass can pull information easily hands-free. Meanwhile mechanics at GE (improved efficiency 8 to 12 percent), DHL workers (increased supply chain efficiency by 15%) and doctors had similar results as well.
