Google Glass 2.0 will have some serious hardware developments. At almost 10 months after Google discontinued the sales for its customer edition of the device, the company has returned with ideas for a renewed form of the innovative eye-wear, which repairs past issues about comfort and mobility.
While no launch interval has been stated, the newest filings from the search engine published these days on the governmental authorities’ site show how their team of experts solved the most important problem that affected the first version of Google Glass, its digital camera.
These new sketches for the device include a light that is switched when the user is shooting a video, as the latest Google Glass’ plans indicate. Dining places, cinemas and strip locations led to the banning of the previous version of the gadget over concerns that customers may secretly have their eye-wear record videos.
With the past model of Google Glass, customers were made fun of until some owners even stopped wearing these devices, according to tech specialists who confirmed the suspicions about the need for a better design.
Google discovered abruptly that other people do not want video clips or images recorded of them. Because of this privacy issue, on the latest version of its device they included a green light that is turned on any time the eye-wear is running.
The photos also show that the company has improved the style of its Google Glass by placing the power key to the rear of the product. Another key modification is the hinge that makes it simpler to flip the device and allegedly get it into a compact case that may perhaps get into tiny bags or even a person’s pocket.
The previous version of the Google Glass required customers to carry with them a bigger hard case. These newest plans for the device are presumably targeted at business clients instead of daily users. While the search engine has made a series of design modifications, experts say that its dimensions and style do not represent important issues in the upcoming edition.
The product was offered for sale in the summer of 2015 for around $1,500. A few months ago, the company promised that the fans would buy a next-gen of Google, so less than one year later, Google seems to keep its promise.
