Google has announced the second generation of their augmented reality system, Google Glass.

The second generation sees a hardware update, a redesign allowing it to be compatible with existing prescription glasses, and an external mono earbud.

Coinciding with the launch of the latest Glass device, Google also announced they would be expanding their current explorer program, offering existing ‘Glass’ users the chance to invite friends to become part of the test group:

‘Over the next few weeks, all explorers will have the opportunity to invite three friends to join the program. they’ll be able to buy glass online and can have it shipped to their home, office, treehouse or igloo. we’re counting on you to get glass to the people you think will make great explorers. more explorers means more feedback, and more feedback means better glass.

Unfortunately for those of us in the Europe, the expanded explorer program is only available in the US at present.
