Google Glass (the augmented reality eyeware from a couple of years ago) arrived with a splash, but then sort of just faded away - apparently becoming another "beta" product from Google that did not quite make the cut.
However, we now have Google Glass Enterprise; a sort of Glass 2.0 that is more specifically targeted at manufacturing/production environments. This time, Google may actually have something - something more than a parade of yuppie "Glassholes" smirkingly showing of their fashionable "know-it-all" eyewear.
WiredIt turns out that with Glass, Google originally developed something with promising technology—and in its first effort at presenting it, failed to understand who could use it best and what it should be doing. Now the company has found a focus. Factories and warehouses will be Glass’s path to redemption.
