Google Glass Is Back But Maybe Not for You

The new Google Glass Enterprise Edition includes an updated camera module that bumps resolution from 5 megapixels to 8. It also has longer battery life, a better processor, an indicator for video recording and improved Wi-Fi speeds (most of the spec bumps are what you’d expect for a product taking advantage of further cost decreases on smartphone components).

But the biggest change is the fact that the Glass EE module has now been decoupled entirely from integrated frames, meaning it can work with all kinds of existing eyewear, including industrial safety glasses.

Though Google is bringing back the glass, it will be an enterprise-focused product. An earlier version of the glass has shown an increase in productivity and efficiency in a number of working environments. Google detailed a few existing use cases, including in the agricultural machinery manufacturing industry, medical field and logistics.
Focusing entirely on the enterprise market might help Google address the privacy concerns which plagued the previous google glass.
