Google Glass resurrected as a tool for hands-on workers

But on Tuesday, the company officially launched the Google Glass Enterprise Edition.

"Workers in many fields, like manufacturing, logistics, field services and health care find it useful to consult a wearable device for information and other resources while their hands are busy", he said.

Kothari noted that through working with the likes of General Electric Aviation, DHL, and Volkswagen, Google has produced a refined version of its smart glasses, now sporting a designed that is better for long term wear and boosted power and battery life.

Google has already partnered with several companies to deploy its Glass EE. According to GE, technicians at its Pensacola, Florida, facility have seen a 34-percent increase in productivity since using Glass with Upskill's Skylight platform to assemble wind turbines.

Palestinians subsequently rioted in Jerusalem, clashing with Israeli security forces near the Old City's Lion's Gate entrance. The police said they plan to gradually open additional gates, after installing metal detectors.

The new iteration of the product even offers a sharper picture, with Google buffing the original Glass' 5-megapixel camera to an 8-megapixel one. Hit the link for more details.

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.

Three years ago, an Explorer program let developers and other "early adopters" try out the glasses, in an early test of potential business applications.

Google Glass is back, but this time the users should be safely contained in manufacturing facilities and corporate buildings.

Turkish director arrested for film of Erdogan 'execution'
In the US , the Washington D.C. metropolitan area subway management did not permit posters condemning the coup attempt to be hung. Eser was detained earlier this month along with seven other rights activists and two foreign trainers.

The new version of Google Glass features some software changes made by X, after spending two years with its partners in the business world to improve the product. We thought Google Glass is dead until the recent leaks that talked about its return.

Similarly, DHL employees use Glass to move inventory around the warehouse faster and doctors at Dignity Health are connecting with patients by looking them in the eye, listening as they talk, and asking questions.

Alphabet today lifted the non-disclosure requirement on its Glass EE from the partners and opened up the program for more and more enterprises to join.

However, the HoloLens suffers from poor battery life, as it is now capable of only two to three hours of use.
