Google working on second gen Glass

For those who love the current generation’s wearables, yesterday must have been a fun day. First we had new details regarding Samsung’s Gear Glass have surfaced and then on top of that Google Glass went on sale in the US, as an “open beta” device. There has been no change in the price even for the early access and it is still available for $1500. This might be a little too high a price to pay for a gadget which is still not ready for primetime and leaving this at its current stage, the search engine giant is already working on a 2nd generation of Glasses according to some reports.

The new came in from Kong Wenjun of Crystal Optech which claims that Google is in the early stages of the development of its second generation Glass and the samples have already been provided to Google’s R&D team. The reports also show that Google has already certified Crystal Optec’s LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon – “micro display” tech also used on 1st gen Google Glass) through a number of middlemen. The company doesn’t want to engage in a direct relationship with Crystal Optec so they could prevent the public (media) from finding out too soon about Google’s plans.

It took some time, but last December Google created a MyGlass companion app for iOS, allowing iPhone owners to get most of the same functionality from Glass as Android users. That’s not likely going to happen with Android Wear, however. The first clue was when Dave Singleton, Google’s Android Engineering Director, shared ...
