We already have it on good authority that the second-gen Google Glass will be Intel-powered. Now, patent documents spotted by eWeek have given us a glimpse at what the upcoming device might look like:
For reference, this is what the current-gen Google Glass looks like (when it's not fused into actual eyeglass frames):
The model pictured in the patent documents clearly has less bulk. The plasticky lump that wraps behind the user's ear is gone, and the nosepads have disappeared, too. Come to think of it, I'm not sure how the thing is supposed to stay up on someone's face. I guess the frame wraps tightly around the user's skull, and the temple tips act as counterweights, or something?
Anyway, there you go. I'm not sure the changes make the device discreet enough to wear without looking like a doofus, but they look like progress.
