Will Google ReInvest in Google Glass?

A lot of pundits claim that v1 of Google Glasshas pretty much died. Mostly claiming that it's no longer seen or talked about - and had no presence at this year's Google I/O. But knowing google and their deep pockets I wouldn't expect them to give up so easily.
Wondering if people think Google will invest in Glass or similar projects and what the real use cases will be (e.g. medicine).

I know of several products being designed for Google Glass, specifically. These are niche products and unlikely to be seen. I would be surprised if it just died. I think it is most definitely going to evolve; hopefully the underlining libraries and approach in development won't change too much during the transition...

...I also think we're going to see an expansionof other companies into this realm.

Last I heard, Google peeps were still happy with the product...

At CES there was an announcement that Google will be using Intel's low power CPU in the next version of Glass (Edison I think, though may be Quark based). Therefore I doubt very much that Google are killing it off.

The current version is using very old tech (OMAP processor from TI which isn't in production anymore). I guess Glass II will be more slick and in-line with a future product, the original was the "Explorer" edition mainly designed for developers/early adopters and to get Glassware apps out there.

I think they will. The first version was really just a test to learn from.

Hi Kate, Google Glass ain't dead, especially in Healthcare! Global vendors like AGFA HealthCare are experimenting on it with a solution already for radiology workflow improvement: http://youtu.be/QSdoHuPKG3M Philips Healthcare is using it for surgery: http://www.healthcare.philips.com/main/about/future-of-healthcare/ And plenty of recent articles supporting the usability of GG in healthcare/medicine: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/6003100 And a lot more :-) For other industries. I'm not so sure, but certainly Google glass, in B2C environment seems to have difficulties ramping up. What do you think? Sent from my iPhone

Looks like Nest's Tony Fadell is being put in charge for the Google Glass. Google announced today "Glass is 'graduating' from the Google X experimental projects incubator to become its own independent division", which will report directly to Tony Fadell.
