If you were one of the very few people who tried out Google Glass, you may be excited to know the search engine giant isn't finished with its venture into wearable tech just yet.

You probably remember that Google came out with its wearable Glass device to quite a bit of hype, and hope. It was hoped the device, which resembled a thin pair of reading glasses, could be comparable to a hands-free smartphone, where you'd see information like maps add to the real world around you. Ultimately, the first Google Glass failed.

Earlier this year, we told you that Google scratched its Glass program, so to speak. But, while the original version of its wearable tech may be gone, Google vowed to press on with the concept, now known as Project Aura.

As it turns out, Google is working on a few prototypes for a new version of the device. One of those versions is a flexible strap that rests on one ear and over one eye.

Google has filed three patents for Glass-like devices. There is also a sports version in development and another one similar in design to Google Glass, to be used by companies.
