It is back! Google glass has received its first update in years. Although it was not successful as the other technologies brought out by Google, it was an experimental and extremely expensive wearable that took the tech world by storm a few years ago. The recent update has added a new feature of Bluetooth support, which means Glass, can now be paired with input devices like keyboards. Google Glass is an optical head-mounted display designed in the shape of a pair of eyeglasses. It was developed by X with the mission of producing a ubiquitous computer and was used to display information as in a smartphone a hands-free format. This is reassuring news to all those glass owners who thought Google abandoned them. The last update on the same was in September 2014, long time back.
The update is a reminder of the earlier versions of the smart glasses that cost $1,500 and never really took off with consumers. Google glass was debuted in the year 2012, and has earned curious and often envious glances from passers-by. With this new update more and more businesses are expected to find use for the device – particularly through Google’s Glass at Work program. The update is all about a new Bluetooth capability so it can hook up mice, keyboards and other Bluetooth-enabled objects. Although the future of the Google glass cannot be predicted that easily, we can atleast say that it is alive as of now!
