Google Glass to Turn Water Resistant

Google Glass, the incredible new addition to the industry of wearable technology that has taken the world by storm will soon be receiving an upgrade. Unlike smartphones and tablets, the device won’t be getting slimmer or enjoying the benefits of fancy additional features. Instead, a new version of this popular product is in development for professional users and it will apparently feature a higher level of water resistance than the original piece of wearable technology. This interesting new iteration of Google Glass could be well-suited to workplace users of the product and the additional levels of resistance will be greatly appreciated by a certain set of users.

The device will be known as the Google Glass Enterprise Edition, and one can quickly deduce from the name that this product will be marketed at professional customers. The original version of Google Glass is known as the Explorer Edition, and the new variant has some unique features that set it apart from its predecessor. For one, the Enterprise Edition has a foldable frame, allowing users to safely and conveniently store the device just like a regular pair of glasses. In fact, the main idea behind this product is to create a Google Glass device that functions like a normal pair of glasses.

Not only will the frame be foldable, but it is also tougher and more resistant, with a slightly different appearance. Most people probably wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the Explorer Edition and the Enterprise Edition as the two share many similarities. For example, both versions include a solid band across the front of the head and all of the technology powering the device is located on the right-hand side. The display is featured in the right lens of both devices. Therefore, if any users decide to make the switch from the Explore Edition to the Enterprise Edition, they shouldn’t be particularly overwhelmed or confused as the devices work in an almost identical fashion.

So what does set the Enterprise version apart? Well, the appearance is slightly different as the new device features a hinge which allows it to fold. This wasn’t present in the original design and gives the latest variant of Google Glass a more casual appearance. The housing on the right-hand side is also a little larger as Google has worked on improving the resistance levels of the entire device. The important technical elements are now better protected in a thicker shell that should be able to survive little knocks and falls from time to time.

Also, as previously mentioned, the device is more resistant to water now, which is particularly useful for people who work in outdoor environments or places where their Google Glass risks getting wet. These changes represent a new approach from Google; rather than focusing on making their device as sleek as possible, they’re putting their efforts into improving its resistance and functionality, which should certainly be appreciated by users who worry about damaging their expensive electronic devices while at work.
