Google Glass 2 to be rolled out, even though no-one has the first batch

29 October 2013

google glasses A new version of Google Glass will be rolling out, even though no-one has really got their hands on the old version. Apparently, the new Glass will be designed to work with prescription glasses and sunglasses.

In addition to that, Google Glass 2 is going to have a mono earbud for those creeped out by the bone-vibration functionality. For those who already have a pair, Google have graciously said that people can "swap out" their existing hardware for the updated specs if they get on it quick enough.

"We'll be offering a one-time optional swap out for Explorers who purchased their device before October 28, 2013," said Google on the official Google Glass Google+ account (yes, that's still a thing). "This hardware update will allow your Glass to work with future lines of shades and prescription frames, and we'll also include a mono earbud."

If you were one of the few to have a pair of Google goggles, then you are now able to nominate three friends to get the chance to buy into the pilot scheme, if they've got the dough.

Google added, quite annoyingly: "They'll be able to buy Glass online and can have it shipped to their home, office, treehouse or igloo. We're counting on you to get Glass to the people you think will make great Explorers. More Explorers means more feedback, and more feedback means better Glass."

Everyone else is just going to have to wait.
