Google continues with Glass 2 – Early Prototypes in the hands of Developers

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.

Google Glass is A Dead Enterprise Wearable with Lost Potential

As a response to my previously posted blog Google Glass Sucks and it’s Dead? Wait, what?! :

Google announced it was ending the Glass Explorer program yesterday (on the 15th) and handing over the reins to Nest’s Tony Fadell, it seemed to exit with more of a whimper than a scream. Let’s face it, from its earliest days, people loved to hate Glass.

In fact, from the moment Google announced Glass, people reacted harshly to the new technology. They simply hated the idea of nerds with computers on their faces who could take photos or videos surreptitiously. A new word, Glassholes, entered the popular lexicon to describe folks who wore Glass.

But, does that mean Google Glass is really dead this time?

In its current form, Glass is undoubtedly dead, but there’s no reason to believe Google won’t relaunch it with a new version in the coming month — likely around its annual I/O developer conference.

Now, Glass is becoming its own business unit inside of Google, Tony Fadell will oversee the program, and sales to businesses, developers and schools will continue. Google is also encouraging developers to continue writing apps for the platform. Those are not signs that Google plans to cancel the platform. With Fadell in charge, I doubt Google will only focus on business use cases, as Fadell doesn’t do enterprise.

Do you this the Glass will be re-born as a successful wearable or will die in to the night?
