According to Business Insider’s Jillian D’Onfro, Google is calling its revamped Glass “Project Aura”…
Google is working on a new wearable technology effort known as Project Aura and is hiring consumer electronics experts from Amazon’s secretive Lab126 to jump-start the new group.
Project Aura appears to have gotten started in June and is focused on reviving Google’s troubled Glass computer eyeglasses, as well as accelerating Google’s efforts to develop related wearable technology.
As I reported previously, Google is hard at work on the next consumer-facing Glass-like product. I heard from a little birdie that Google wanted to move away from the “Glass” moniker for the next release, and this pretty much confirms it.
