Google Shows Off New Iteration Of Glass Hardware

30 October 2013


Google published two photos of the next version of Glass, its computer device that you can wear like glasses, on Tuesday in a Google+ post. A consumer-friendly Google Glass will be available sometime next year — there’s no official release date yet — and current Glass “Explorers” will be able to swap the old pair for a new set. Explorers can also invite up to three friends to purchase the $1,500 lenses.

So what’s new?

As reported Monday by Techland’s Jared Newman, the second-generation has a mono earbud, rather than a speaker. It also is designed to work with prescription glasses.

The new design, by all accounts, is worse. Good job Google.
