Google Glass just made a Comeback with the Glass Enterprise Edition

What do you think of the newfangled Google Glass Enterprise Edition?

Google is working with several dozen partners to build customised software and business solutions for Glass.

In a blog entry, X's Glass project lead Jay Kothari revealed that the company had revamped the device to make it lighter and more comfortable for long-term wear, as well as boosted its power and battery life.

The HoloLens has the advantage of using superimposed images over both eyes and, due to its more powerful processing abilities, more complex apps.

Companies like DHL and Volkswagen said they like Google Glass because it's hands-free and wearable, which lets employees consult instructions, resources or even remote video support without looking away.

According to Kothari, GE Aviation in Cincinnati, Ohio are now using Glass that not only reduced errors at key points in the assembly and overhaul of engines but improved their mechanics' efficiency by between 8-12 per cent.

Workers at AGCO, an agricultural machinery manufacturer in Jackson, Minnesota, are using Glass Enterprise Edition.

DHL, General Electric, and Dignity Health have all been testing out the Google Glass Enterprise Edition.

Glass Enterprise Edition is optimized for enterprise use, so it works with safety goggles. Hit the link for more details.

In a blog post, Jay Kothari, Project Lead for Glass describes his team's partnership with GE Aviation in OH, where Glass helped mechanics working on Airplane maintenance save valuable time by floating all the information they need on the Glass.

"We first saw signs of Glass' potential for businesses in the Glass Explorer days", said Kothari.

This time, if Google can take the project seriously and run with it, Google Glass may manage to gain some traction in this market despite the competition. The new version of Google Glass comes with some software and hardware upgrades to help businesses.

The X team has also worked with healthcare professionals to make Glass useful for the profession.

Google Glass was a very hotly watched product before it was effectively shelved from public view in January of 2015, since then Google X, or X as it's now known under parent company Alphabet, has been re-working it as a tool in the enterprise space. "This time, the new model and strategic approach many give Glass a better chance for adoption".
