Google Glass is a wearable augmented reality device.

Google’s adventures in the augmented and virtual spaces started in 2012, when it unveiled Glass. The augmented reality (AR) device was hailed as ‘the gadget’ by many in the industry, and was named by Time Magazine as one of the “Best Inventions of the Year”.

In 2014, Google was involved in the funding of alternative reality firm Magic Leap, who secured $542 million to develop new technologies and experiences also to be used on Glass.

However, Glass was stopped in 2015, with Google unveiling plans to start working on smart AR contact lenses – that on top of the AR functions would also measure diabetes patients’ glucose levels.


Glass has been brought back by Google – but under what name?
