The Internet of Things will become an increasingly big deal as all consumer technology becomes connected to the web, and by extension one another. Google has several technologies including Brillo and Weave that take advantage of this ubiquitous computing trend. Announced at Google I/O earlier this year, Google is hosting a developer summit for developers focused around those topics. They announced the speaker list and opened registration today.
Besides Brill and Weave, Android Wear, Beacons, Google Cast, Android TV, and Android Auto will be discussed. There is also an interesting session about Project Tango and how to take advantage of it. The schedule was released today as well as the list of speakers, mostly composed of Google engineers and developer advocates.
Earlier this year, we told you across severalexclusivereportsthat new Google Glass hardware was on the way, namely a device Google has been working on for more than a year aimed at the workplace. Now, several months later (and with many interesting reports about Google’s mysterious Project Aura having surfaced since), we have our first look at the device in the flesh…
Google’s next move for Glass is clearly into the enterprise, and the device that Google is using to make this move, appropriately dubbed “Enterprise Edition,” has improved internal hardware, and a new look built around a button-and-hinge system made for working environments. As you can tell, the device doesn’t look all too different than the previous Google Glass: Explorer Edition, but foldability was one of the previous version’s most-requested features — and now it’s part of the design.
