Google has announced a new version of itsbusiness-oriented headset Augmented Reality Glass, which is positioned no longer as an experimental, but as an official Google product.

Google still does not position Glass asmain product. However, it appears that he is expecting an increase in sales of Glass Enterprise Edition 2. The device was taken out of Google Alphabet's X-Fabulous Factory factory - X - into the Google product family so that the company could “meet the needs of the growing market of wearable devices in the workplace”.
The basic design of Glass has not changed much. This is still a relatively simple display before your eyes, and not a mixed reality headset in the spirit of Microsoft HoloLens. But he received accelerated processing, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 chip, specially designed for augmented and virtual reality. Google says that thanks to the power of the XR1, the new Glass Headset can enable "computer vision and advanced machine learning." Google has already released a consumer-oriented tool for computer vision - Lens - that offers features such as translating signs and recommending restaurants.
Glass now work on Android with support for Android Enterprise Mobile Device Management.
Initially, the headset was created for massmarket, but after the unsuccessful development of Google decided to make it a tool for surgeons, factory workers and other professionals. The original version of Explorer Edition cost 1500 dollars - the new version will be much more affordable.
