(CNN) — A new version of Google Glass, the company’s breakthrough entry into the world of wearable tech, is on the way.
Current testers, or “Explorers,” in Google’s parlance, will get a chance to swap out their current models for the new ones, the company said in a Google+ post.
The new Google Glass hardware will work with eyeglasses or shades, and include an ear bud to replace the speaker in the current model. The bone-conduction speaker, which, similar to some hearing aids, literally sends sound waves through the skull to the ear, has been called faulty by some testers.
The swap begins Friday and testers will have 60 days to decide if they want new Glass.
The roughly 10,000 current testers also be able to invite up to three friends into the program, which requires testers to fork over the current $1,500 price of the glasses.
