Google working on a more subtle, less ridiculous version of Glass

After years of ridicule and ‘glasshole’ comments, it looks like Google is making an effort to ensure its Glass wearable looks a little more subtle and a little less ridiculous in the future by packing its all important tech within the device itself.

According to Gizmodo, Google has filed a new patent that includes the photo above. As you can see, the bulky bit of tech that houses the brains behind Glass is much more streamlined within the frame of the device itself rather than stuck on the side.

Admittedly Glass will still look different to a standard pair of glasses, but it’ll be less obvious that you’re recording conversations and tweeting secret tidbits from important work meetings.
