Google is challenging Microsoft’s HoloLens with a new version of its Glass augmented reality eyewear targeted at businesses, continuing a transition started two years ago for the device. Google today…
This is an interesting development, for sure. As the article says, Google Glass had a shaky start several years ago. I even fell for the craze temporarily with disastrous results that made me determine that the technology wasn’t quite ready for prime time. AR and VR have improved a bit over the years, even though it’s still a developing technology. Working in its favor is that the new Google Glass is cheaper than the latest Hololens product, but in a sense that’s not saying much, since it’s still about US$1000 (and that’s not even including my expensive prescription lenses because my eyes are so bad!).
Time will tell if Google Glass has raised the bar, or just met the bar.
