Streye

Did you regret skipping Google Glass the first time around? You now have a second chance... if you have a specific need for it, that is. Glass for Work partner Streye is now selling the follow-up Glass Enterprise Edition starting at €1,550 (about $1,829). This is clearly intended for business (you get access to Streye's enterprise streaming services with your purchase), so you really, really won't want to buy it if you're just trying to impress your friends. However, this is still the most accessible Glass has been in years -- if you do need a wearable eyepiece, it's theoretically within easy reach.

To recap, this isn't a night-and-day rethink of the Glass concept. Rather, it's a logical evolution intended for workers who need hands-free computing. The biggest difference is the much larger 780mAh battery, which should keep it running for more of the workday. You're otherwise getting twice the storage (32GB), an Intel Atom processor, faster WiFi, an expanded range of sensors (mainly assisted GPS) and a louder speaker. It's otherwise a collection of minor tweaks. In short, you'd have to be a collector to appreciate this if you don't intend to use it for professional tasks.
