Earlier this month it was reported that Google is developing a new edition of the revolutionary Google Glass eyewear and today Google has put rumours to rest by announcing that a new updated version of their Google Glass eyewear is indeed in development.
Google also announced that they will be making their new Google Glass 2 eyewear available to its Google Glass Explorers who were able to get their hands on the first development prototypes of the Google Glass system for payment of $1500 after entering a innovation process.
It’s not been confirmed however if the Glass Explorers will receive the new updated hardware for free or whether they will need to part with more cash to upgrade. But they have also been told that they will be receiving 3 invites to the Google Glass program which they can give to friends and family.
The new Google Glass 2 eyewear now fully supports prescription glasses and will also include a mono earbud, which is expected to replace the not so perfect bone conduction speaker that was included with the current Google Glass edition.
To re-cap the current Google Glass eyewear is fitted with a high resolution display which gives you the equivalent display of a 25 inch HD display from eight feet away and is positioned just in front of your right eye.
Google Glass is also equipped with a 5 megapixel camera that can record HD video in 720P, together with 12GB of internal storage for apps, files and media that is synced with Google’s Cloud Storage, as well as connectivity provided by with Bluetooth and WiFi.
As Google releases more information regards the specifications of the new Google Glass 2 eyewear we will keep you updated. No images of the new Google Glass 2 eyewear have yet been released.
