Glass Enterprise Edition 2 Design: Google’s New Specs
🗣 The device, developed by Google and manufactured by Foxconn, is one of the lightest pieces of wearable technology. Made with titanium, 60% lighter than iron, and highly robust, the frame is barely noticeable to the user.
The assisted reality device is a monocular smart glass with a full-color display placed on the right side of the frame, slightly above the field of vision. The transparent display uses a prism for transparency, allowing the user to look through it during operations. Google designers’ goal was to create a tool to facilitate efficient work without distracting professionals from their surroundings. Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 can be controlled by swiping on the side of the frame and using voice commands. The device has on-head detection and eye-on-screen sensors to extend battery life when not in active use.
The Enterprise Edition 2 is sold in pieces, the Glass Pod (the electronic part of the unit), and the frame separately. As a result, purchasers can buy frames with e.g. prescription lenses to match their needs. The Pod and frame are convenient to connect and detach by using built-in hinges.
The device benefits from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR1 resulting in better performance compared to the previous model. Running on the Android Open Source Platform, the Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 is easy and fast to develop.
