The original Google Glass is getting an update. We don't know when or where, or which kind of buyer the wearable will target (we're hearing rumors it's corporations), but photos showed up at the FCC, which usually means a launch will soon follow.

The right arm houses the device's screen and camera. The arm rests on its right side. All measurements are in inches.

This appears to be the device's wireframe for that right arm, which holds the screen and battery.

Not part of this FCC filing, this sketch of a slim, curvy band worn around half the head came from a November 2015 patent that Google submitted. At this stage, consider it a concept device. Perhaps it's a taste of things to come.
