Introduced back in 2013, Google has now unveiled the second edition of its smart eyewear — Glass Enterprise Edition 2. Though many other players have stepped in the market, Microsoft’s HoloLens especially has managed a lot of consumer attention. The newly launched Glass Enterprise Edition 2 is priced at $999 in the US but the time or date of availability is not yet provided. Notably, though, the price of the wearable has certainly come down from its last edition, which was priced at $1500.
