As the public already knows this, Google’s Glass project has gone away for the time being. But, as it seems, Google is still heading strong on continuing with Glass further study and development. Only this time, away from the public eye.
Google is working with developers on the next version, Google Glass 2 (as reported from 9to5Google). Prototypes of the new Glass might already be in the hands of developers (at Work partners) who have received “very early versions” of the next iteration of Google Glass. With these trusted developers, Google will give consumers a reason to get excited about its wearable in the coming months.
Oculus Rift and Gear VR have taken the place of Glass as the most discussed headsets on the market. The upcoming HoloLens, by Microsoft, is also competing for the public attention and love, and is expected to give a very good fight. And so, Google will have to find a way to compete in a field that has changed significantly since the first Glass models began shipping.
