Google Glass was heavily promoted when early adopter "Glass Explorers" paid $1500 for the device in 2013.

Augmented reality glasses Google Glass has received its first three-year update of the firmware number XE23.

Whitbread shares rise as Premier Inn records 7pc sales boost
Whitbread also continued adding a raft of Premier Inn rooms, with more than another 1,000 rooms since March in the UK. It expects total proceeds of around £100m to £150m from sale and leaseback transactions this year.

Among the stuff that has been added, are bluetooth input device support. While the update isn't particularly huge or anything, it does confirm the fact that the Google Glass is still a product.

If you have a Google Glass sitting in a drawer somewhere in your bedroom, go ahead and plug it back in, punch in your new Wi-Fi password, and download the update. It was actually a Google X project and once it graduated from the company's experimental labs, it was repositioned as more of an enterprise product.

Whether or not the company decides to make one in the future is another matter entirely, but it hasn't hinted anything about that as yet.
