Google parent Alphabet Inc. is relaunching Glass, its head-worn
computer, targeting corporate customers after its initial version
flopped because of privacy concerns.
Dubbed Glass Enterprise Edition, the product has been in testing
at about 50 companies, including Boeing Co., General Electric Co.
and Volkswagen AG, Alphabet said Tuesday.
The new device, which is designed to snap on eyeglass frames and
display information, videos and images in the line of a person’s
sight, allow workers to see instructional content. They can also
use the device to broadcast what they are viewing back to others
for real-time instruction.
Still looks goofy (in fact, it pretty much looks the same), but I can see how it could prove popular in work environments so long as it’s useful. People ranging from mechanics to surgeons have long worn industrial-looking eyewear on the job.
