Google's next-gen Glass eyewear lasts longer and runs on Android

Google's next-gen Glass eyewear lasts longer and runs on Android

The third generation of Google Glass has arrived for tech-savvy workers . Google has introduced Glass Enterprise Edition 2 eyewear that largely sticks to the familiar formula on the outside, but should be far more powerful both in hardware and software. For one, it's "built on Android" -- it should be easier for developers to write Glass-friendly apps, and you can even enroll it in Android's enterprise device management to help IT maintain control. Creators might want to write apps for it, too, since there are some big changes under the hood.
