Can Google Glass Make a Comeback?



Google Glass was one of those great technological trends that wasn’t. It was posed to be the next big thing, then…we didn’t hear much about it after that. But could Google Glass be working on a comeback?

According to Variety and The Wall Street Journal, a new version of Google Glass is getting out there, this time with minimal hype. This will be for businesses, and a consumer version could be available in a year.

This version of Google Glass doesn’t have its own frames. Instead, you clip it on to your regular glasses, and this could work for people in the health care, manufacturing, and energy business.

So perhaps Google Glass just wasn’t ready, or the world wasn’t ready for it, but maybe next year it will be. Who knows, and maybe if you hear enough people raving about it on the job it will be available for the rest of the world as well.
