News from Google’s Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality department. After first news about the new, business-oriented version of the Google Glass, the Tech Gigant has now announced the first market-ready version of the AR Headset. After some experiments and tests, the Glass Enterprise Edition 2 will be available for 999 US dollars.

But what does the revised glasses offer? In addition to a new and more powerful processor, the Business AR headset also has an improved camera and a USB-C port for faster charging.
Even though the Glass Enterprise Edition 2 display does not enable 3D Augmented Reality, as the HoloLens2 will, for example, do, the software can provide some exciting application scenarios that will make processes faster and more efficient. In particular, the new Qualcomm XR1 chip, which supports computer vision and machine learning, can make the new Google Glass an entry into the immersive world for many companies.

Probably the most striking feature of the Glass Enterprise Edition 2 is the spectacle frame. In contrast to its predecessors, it looks almost like normal glasses. This is made possible by the partnership with Smith Optics, who were responsible for the design of the gadget.
Among the first customers and partners of the new Google Glass are the DHL Group, HB Fuller and AGCO.
