Google Glass has thus far been a flop for regular people doing normal things. But for more boring tasks enhancing productivity and increasing profit, there’s still promise. A report from Electrek claims that Tesla is using the new Enterprise Edition headsets at its Fremont factory.
The report joins a few dots to conclude that Tesla is using Glass to help workers at its factory. The most persuasive is that APX Labs, a company that designs software for smart glasses, lists Tesla as one of its main customers. Add that to the image above—previously posted on APX’s website, clearly showing some kind of smart glasses being used in a Tesla factory—and it’s a reasonably convincing argument. From the photo, it looks like Glass is serving as a glorified hands-free inventory management system for workers on the shop floor.
