Google has posted a couple of images on its Google Plus page for Google Glass in which it shows the new wearable computing device.

Saying that it would rather “show” than “tell” the company shared these two images with the world, reminding Explorers that they’re going to get the new model when “they swap” later this year.


As you can see in these images, Google Glass has a mono earbud, but not much else is revealed about the hardware refresh – according to a post on the same Google Plus account, the company has also made the hardware “better.”

What we do know is that the new Google Glass will support prescription frames, and that Explorers will be able to invite up to three friends to get their own Glass gadget later this year.

Are you looking forward to buying Glass?

    I distinctly remember the previous iteration much less resembling a boa constrictor being attached to your face.

    You know… as far as the “geekier” comment is concerne… YOU ARE ON A GEEK FILLED WEBSITE! THIS IS WHERE GEEKS THRIVE! I am told all the time that I don’t look like a geek. But deep down I am through and through! I also couldn’t give 2 shits what the hell other people are thinking. If I had a chance to wear a pair of these around… I’D BE ALL OVER IT!!!! :-P
