In mid-January,that Tony Fadell had been put in charge of the Google Glass initiative and that the program had moved out of the Google X exploratory labs and given a full lease on life. While some took that as the end of Google’s wearable technology, many saw it for what it was: a step in the right direction.
Now, after months of quiet settled over Glass, the Chief Executive Officer of Luxottica, Massimo Vian, has confirmed that a new version of the wearable will be unveiled soon. According to the Wall Street Journal, this information was shared at a recent company meeting. If Luxottica doesn’t sound familiar to you, you’ve more than likely heard of the companies under its wing, including Oakley and Ray-Ban.
As it stands, any details about what the new Google Glass might look like or features it might have are unknown. There haven’t been any grumblings that Google could show off a new Glass at this year’s I/O conference,. It would stand to reason that the new Glass is probably still in its early days, though.
Are you looking forward to the next version of Glass?
