History of Google Glass & the old version
In 2012/2013, Google made its first attempt at smart eyewear with Google Glass, which boasted capabilities such as a projector-driven display, trackpad, camera for taking pictures and videos, bone conduction audio, and voice commands.
The public and business community did not respond well to the previous edition. However, it did fairly well and is still on the market.
Enterprise Edition 2 is still not released to the public. So don’t get tricked and buy the older version, which is widely advertised and sold on marketplaces like eBay. A screenshot of the older vision being advertised on eBay is shown below for gullible customers to be aware of.
Many things have changed since 2012/13. The new version comes with the latest technology. The development of ultra-wideband (UWB) technology in recent years has been one of the more intriguing ones for smart homes.
in May 2022 at its I/O developer conference. Google demonstrated a pair of augmented reality glasses with Google Translate preloaded in a brief video. The communication barrier between two persons who don’t speak or understand the same language is eliminated by the real-time language translation offered by the AR glasses.
Other Smart Glasses in the Market
Xiaomi, Oppo & TCL have also come up with Smart Glasses. Apple is on its way to launching its own Smart Glass. We’ll take a quick look at these smart glasses in this blog through videos.
Apart from these the following Smart Glasses also deserve to be mentioned.
- Bose Frames – Similar to Bluetooth earphones
- Fauna Audion Glasses – Similar to Bose
- Ray-Ban Stories – a collaboration between Ray-Ban and Facebook
- Snapchat Spectacles
As revealed by Appleinsider, although Apple frequently sells items that are quite similar to one another, the iPhone has always been the company’s camera, and this isn’t likely to change. Apple’s offering will enhance the iPhone experience, unlike Google Glass, which looked to want to completely replace the smartphone.
Another expectation is that the content on the glasses will only be visible to the wearer, keeping curious bystanders out of your place of business.
Apple has considered utilizing “Apple Glass” as a form of authentication as well. The headset might identify if the wearer is staring at the device and instantly unlock it rather than using the iPhone’s built-in biometrics.
