According to an article published in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), the much-rumored enterprise-focused new version of Google Glass Internet-connected eyewear will have an attachable design, which will make it possible for the device to attach to other eyewear.
The new WSJ report, based on the information shared by unidentified sources, comes in wake of recent rumors that Google is developing a business-centric version of its Glass smartglasses. The new version will reportedly be available only for business use, and will not be sold to consumers.
With Google reportedly handing out the new Glass version to testers in the enterprise arena, the WSJ report has revealed that the new Glass will retain the curved, rectangular form factor of the original, consumer-focused version.
However, in place of the fixed wire-like frame of the original Glass version, the new Glass will come with a button-and-hinge system, which will give the device the ability to attach to different kinds of eyewear by sliding over them.
Moreover, as per the WSJ sources, Google aims to have the new Glass version in use by this fall at companies in different areas like healthcare, manufacturing and energy. The device is reportedly being already distributed to software developers so that they can create apps for it.
