New version of Google Glass announced. More ram, photo preview, new cards, a way to find your parked car... Is it too much to ask for at least one new accessibility feature, to give more people with disabilities access to this device?

Thanks to you, Glass just got even better
The Explorer Program has been an exciting ride, and as a result of your feedback, we’ve picked up the pace on making more improvements. In the last year we’ve made over a dozen software and several hardware updates. For example, we’ve improved battery life by over 20%, made voice search 10% faster and brought you frames, shades and prescription support. With I/O about to kick off, we wanted to share some of the most recent improvements we’ll be rolling out. You asked for…
an easier way to frame your shots, so we bring you viewfinder. When you say “ok glass, show the viewfinder” you’ll see white L’s in the four corners of your Glass screen. You can then either take a photo by saying “ok glass, take a picture,” with a wink, or by pushing the camera button.
more Google Now cards, so we launched two new ones to remind you where you parked your car and let you know when packages are coming your way. Stay tuned for more to come.
better performance, so Glass will now start shipping with 2GB of RAM.
We can’t wait to hear what you think – let us know in the comments.
