New Google Glass to run on Intel chips?

With consumers' absorption in Google's Glass reportedly on the wane, a new adaptation of the networked angle with an Intel dent and best array activity is aiming to animate its appeal.

According to a address in the Wall Street Journal, the abutting abundance of Glass, due out abutting year, will be powered by Intel chips instead of the processors supplied by Texas Instruments it currently uses.

Besides its high-end amount tag, one of Glass's added failings has been its array life, which about lasted at best for a day. Beforehand accouterments updates for Glass additional the RAM and delivered a above battery, but alone accomplished bashful improvements in array life.


It's not accepted which Intel dent will appear with the new adaptation of Glass, but the WSJ address addendum two accessible candidates: the ARM-based processor additionally acclimated in Intel's own MICA wearable apparent beforehand this year, which promises a array activity of two days; and Intel's x86 based arrangement on chip, Quark, for wearables and low-power Internet of Things devices. Whichever dent ends up in Google's headset, the abutting Glass copy will accept an accent on ability attention to atone for the banned to array admeasurement that appear with wearables.

Intel, though, will be go above aloof bartering chips for Glass: according to the publication, the dent maker will aces up the baggy in blame Glass to the action — area abounding accept acclaimed Google's angle may accept abeyant alike if it fails to bolt on amid consumers — should Google anytime absolution Glass to accepted availability.


Intel's advance of the accessory could augment Google's own affairs for the action alleged Glass at Work, which has a cardinal of ally developing vertical applications for the healthcare, logistics, manufacturing, and sports industries.

While Intel bedeviled the PC and server markets over the accomplished two decades, that advance didn't backpack over to smartphones and tablets.  The aggregation is now authoritative a concerted accomplishment to ensure it isn't alone in the Internet of Things, area its capabilities accept been spiced up by Wind River.

Intel said: "Intel and Google accept a able accord and assignment carefully calm beyond a cardinal of altered areas but we aren't activity to animadversion on speculation." ZDNet has asked Google for animadversion and will amend the adventure if any is forthcoming.
