Next Google Glass to be Intel-based?

Wall Street Journal claims Google's second version of the Glass device will feature a chip made by Intel. The current version of Google's wearable electronics was unveiled in 2012 and features a chip from Texas Instruments, details about the new Intel chip used in the second-generation Glass azre unknown but obviously there will be a strong focus on power conservation. The journal notes this isn't the first cooperation between Intel and Google, the search giant also uses Intel chips for its servers, the self-driving car project and the Nexus Player.
It isn’t clear what Intel chip Google will use in the new version of Glass. But there will be an emphasis on power conservation. “For wearables like Glass, the processor has to be lower power because the batteries have to be so small,” said Al Cowsky, an analyst at TechInsights’ Teardown.com, which examined the guts of the first version of Glass earlier this year.

Google and Intel have been working together in other areas. Intel chips power Google servers, and the companies are working to advance Google’s Android and Chrome operating systems. Intel’s Xeon chips have been used in Google’s self-driving cars, and the company’s Atom chips are used in the Nexus Player, a new Google streaming-media device.
