The new Enterprise Edition of Google glass is expected to by an Intel Atom CPU powered, which ensures considerably more power. Also the battery life should improve slightly due to the new processor. In addition, the data glasses should receive a larger display. The Web site has this information 9to5Google sources referred to unspecified, who have access to the prototypes of the new Google-glass version.
Still no information about the exact type of the used Atom processor are the sources of 9to5Google according to the article. He should be but slightly faster clocked than the current AndroidCPUs – wear-Smartwatches. These are mostly equipped with a 1.2 GHz chip. The battery life will increase only slightly in comparison to the Explorer Edition, the performance boost should be clearly noticeable. The atom CPU produce less waste heat than the previously used processor.
9to5Google according to Google currently experimenting with various versions of its new data glasses equipped among others with a larger Prism. This should also further extend in the glasses so that is it allowed for users to see only upward and not up and right. Many users have a high burden of their eyes in a longer use of Google Glass had accused the Explorer Edition. If Google increases the resolution of the screen, this is still unclear. The tester reported but a “better” display compared to the Explorer Edition.
According to the report, Google also experimented with an external battery for Google Glass – for customers who place particularly high demands on the service life. 9to5Google confirms also previous reports, according to which glass future Wi-Fi connection to 802.11a/b/g/n/ac in the 2.4 – and 5-GHz band supports. Google likely wants to improve the use of enterprise video streaming applications for Google Glass.
In January, Google Inc. had the sale of the developer version of its augmented-reality glasses glass set for January 19. Supposedly it works since on a cheaper model for end users. According to statements of the leaders of the world’s biggest eyewear manufacturer Luxottica , the sale of the consumer version could begin soon. The Luxottica Group entered into a partnership with Google last year. Under this agreement the Italian eyewear specialist should make racks for computer glasses – described by Google as “Start a new chapter for the design of glass”.
The division of Google responsible for wearable technology, Project Aura, has been hard at work on numerous iterations based on the original Glass headset. Now we’ve got a glimpse at what one of those devices may look like. In FCC filings published today, a version of Glass designed for the workplace shows a familiar-looking device with a glass prism, but equipped with a hinge so that it can be folded and placed in pockets like a standard pair of glasses.
Only one image in the filings shows a device with the original Glass’ nose bridge, so it’s unclear whether the finished “enterprise version” of Glass, as it’s called, will attach to a headband-like piece of metal and sit perched on the wearer’s nose. The new Glass will reportedly support 5GHz Wi-Fi and contain a better built-in battery, faster Intel processor, and improved camera. The prism, now larger, is said to expand the field of view of Glass’ floating display, according to The Wall Street Journal. The device will also be waterproof and more durable so it can withstand falls and other physical damage on factory floors and other workplace environments.
