Google has disseminated a novel version of its Glass in firms.

Google is making a sales pitch. Its Google Glass is marketed to medical establishments, industrial plants and power houses. The giant search engine company is into distribution for publicity’s sake.

This new Glass is an arc-shaped rectangular device. It bears an uncanny resemblance to the original Explorer, according to WSJ. But it does not have a wire armature. Rather it has a button-and-hinge arrangement.

This new contraption is being distributed to various businesses. A brand new form will take 365 days to reach completion. An official launch is still a long way off. Distribution is the name of the game.

Google is keeping mum about the whole thing though. The original version was worth $1500. It caused a furor when people using it spied on others. Google thus put an end to its sales.

It was a premature move by Google. A year back, Google came up with a consumer version. Yet again the scheme was delayed. The search engine giant was facing some internal conflicts.

Usually Google markets its products before it improves them using feedback from the consumers. A different strategy will be a part of its repertoire. Hardware production is a more backbreaking task than software manufacture.

Yet Google’s commitment to its projects remains at an all-time high. With its new model of Google Glass, it aims at bypassing privacy acts. Everyone from surgeons to field workers will be using it in the context of their careers.

A speedier Intel processor lies at the core of the new version. Besides this, battery longevity and better wireless linkages allow for improved performance. The prism which projects the images is more streamlined too.   

Vertical as well as horizontal movements are possible. The second version has a battery pack to boot. It joins through a magnet to the device. The secret campaign initiated by Google will distribute the new version of Glass. Businesses will test it on a real-time basis.

The radical changes in this version are a result of bitter experiences in the past. The planning for this novel form of Google Glass shifted from the X Lab to another venue. The competition has begun between Google and Microsoft. The two behemoths will be at loggerheads as they try to outdo one another.
