Google has made some changes to their Google Glass project over the last few months and now the company has apparently given the project a new name.
According to a recent report Google Glass is now called Project Aura and Google have apparently been hiring engineers, project managers and software developers from Amazon’s Lab126 for the project.
Google’s plan for Project Aura or Google Glass is to get the device used by enterprise and they are currently giving the device to companies in the health care, energy and manufacturing industries.
The original Google Glass retailed for $1,500 and was sold to developers, Google had planned to launch a consumer version, but those plans have been shelved for now as the new device is developed.
It will be interesting to see how Google develops Project Aura and whether they can make a Glass type device that people will actually want to use.
