Google Glass is back from the dead

Google Glass Enterprise Edition

The original version of the product failed to win over consumers but Google is hoping that the Glass Enterprise Edition will be a success.

"Workers in many fields, like manufacturing, logistics, field services and health care find it useful to consult a wearable device for information and other resources while their hands are busy", he said. The new version of the hardware is said to have better battery life, and a red indicator light that will glow whenever recording is active, the new version is also planned to be able to support prescription lenses, and substitute for safety glasses. Workers using Glass for the first time improved by 46%, according to GE. Google Glass V2.0 is called "Glass Enterprise Edition" and is aimed at industries where they can help workers do their job better. For example, at agricultural machinery manufacturer AGCO, Glass has taken 25% off the time it takes to produce machinery. These firms include AGCO, DHL, GE, Samsung, Sutter Health, and Volkswagen.

The reboot comes from X, the "moonshot" branch of Google's parent company, Alphabet.

Amazon Prepared Meal Kit Service Possibly Launching Soon
The application, reported by the Times this weekend, sent Blue Apron's stock tumbling 11.8 percent to $6.49 a share Monday. As of reporting the news, Amazon's stock continues to rise and Blue Apron's is seeing a notable drop off.

"Based on the positive feedback we've received from customers in a special program we've been running for the past two years, we're now making Glass Enterprise Edition available to more businesses through our network of partners".

Despite the success of AR and VR tech in the consumer market, Glass will be exclusively developed for the business sector, and, as far as we know, there are no plans yet to expand beyond that.

DHL estimates that it has increased supply-chain efficiency by 15 percent because its pickers can have their hands free while they fulfill orders, Kothari boasts in his post.

Hirano added that keeping Charlie on a ventilator would not cause him harm because he did not seem to be in any significant pain. Hirano had estimated that there will be a 10 percent chance of "meaningful success" for the baby using nucleoside treatment.

However, the HoloLens suffers from poor battery life, as it is now capable of only two to three hours of use.

The Glass Enterprise Edition is still only available at a small number of corporations and according to the lengthy Wired report on the matter, sales aren't exactly booming just yet.

Smartglasses lost a lot of their early hype following the public failure of Google Glass.

Google's Glass is back and this time the device has a defined target market backed with multiple business case studies. There's no word on how much the new model of Glass costs.
