Google Glass is back — but don't look for it outside the workplace

Google Glass is back, but this time the much-hyped, yet oft-ridiculed eyewear isn’t leaving the workplace.

On Tuesday, Google announced the launch of Glass Enterprise Edition, a second version of the augmented reality gadget intended for use in warehouses, hospitals and factories — where Glass has found some success despite its lackluster public reception.

Google pulled the plug on its Glass pilot program in 2015 amid concern that owners could use the device’s camera to record people without their knowledge. Yet the device remains in use in some workplaces where displaying information in an employee’s line of sight can help streamline tasks.
