But as Google was focusing on consumers, some companies started putting custom software inside Glass and using it in ways that made their jobs easier-for instance, by guiding them through tasks so they wouldn't have to continually reference instruction manuals. Alphabet made several improvements to the design and internal hardware, introducing a lightweight model that's more comfortable to wear for a prolonged duration.

Instead of a paper book, the GE Aviation employees can access instructions, animation, videos, and more from a Google Glass running software from Upskill, the post said. Other companies using Google Glass include AGCO, DHL, Dignity Health, NSF International, Sutter Health, The Boeing Company and Volkswagen. Google supplies the Glass to a range of developer partners from logistics and manufacturing to the service industry.

Just over two years since production of the original Google Glass was cancelled, the tech giant is set to launch a new business version of the smart glasses.

On Tuesday, Google's parent company, Alphabet, reintroduced the device to the world, calling it simply "Glass" and announcing that it is under the company's experimental "X" department.

Google Glass is to make a return to the market with a focus on business use cases.

It was presumed that the Google Glass project had been cancelled after Tony Fadell, the executive in charge, resigned a year ago.

In the Backchannel piece, author Steven Levy visits a tractor factory in rural Jackson, Minnesota, where factory workers use the glasses while working on an assembly line. It's got increased power and battery life, too. The eyeglass-like wearable is now called Glass Enterprise Edition, and according to the Glass website, it's now "a hands-free device, for hands-on workers".

Glass was today reintroduced by Alphabet X, a "moonshot" facility founded by Google, designed to create ambitious and ground-breaking devices. Alphabet has said the new Enterprise Edition is available to their network of expert partners, but no pricing or commitment information is listed.

Google says they have hundreds of Glass EE being tested all around the United States and they expect to increase that number as it becomes more accessible and comes out of the trial period.

Meanwhile, both the Wi-Fi connectivity and internal processor are said to perform faster, and one of the more significant changes comes in the unit's build: it can now be attached to other glass frames, seemingly anything from goggles, to sunglasses, to prescription glasses.
