It looks like Google Glass is back after all... A new "Enterprise Edition" is launching, aimed at businesses and with the following improvements:
  • a more powerful processor
  • an eight megapixel camera, up from 5MP before
  • the camera button now doubles as a way to detach the electronics from their frame, making it easier to attach them to prescription and safety glasses
  • the battery life lasts for about eight hours of typical use excluding video streaming, up from about five hours before
  • more robust wi-fi connectivity
