Google Glass Upgraded Version Pictures? Earbuds

Everyone is wondering what Google Glass 2.0 will look like. Google doesn't want anyone to call them 2.0, because I suspect they are not 2.0. They are just slight modifications to the first explorer version.

Google shared pictures of what the earbud plugs look like on Google Glass on Google+.

Google said:

Wow, lots of questions! We'd rather "show" than "tell" so here you go: the mono earbud, and the Glass that Explorers will be getting when they swap later this year.

The earbud plugs into Glass, so you can choose whether to use it.

So it looks virtually the same, but you can plug in an earbud into the USB port, which you would use to charge the device.

I am not sure how these can be outfitted for prescription, but I guess time will tell.

What do you do if you're deaf in your right ear? Is there a "comb-over" earplug :)

I have diminished hearing in my right ear so having the option for a left side earbud would make it more useful to me.

Its designed as a compliment to a smart phone not a replacement.

It sounds like you need to have a look at the official Glass page :-) http://www.google.com/glass/start/what-it-does/

I'd give you my input but I'm not fortunate enough to own one. From my viewings around the web however I'd say that it comes in handy for navigation, quick picture/video recordings, simple tasks like a quick search, etc. It's over priced in my opinion but it's a new tech so it's to be expected. You might have better luck on the Google product forums if you want real opinions.

This Google glass looks fashionable, but one may run the risk of getting a ticket wearing while driving
