Well that was quick.  It was only yesterday that Google's Glass program announced that current owners could trade their Glass devices in for a new version of the hardware and today we've got pictures of the new model.   Now to be honest this new 'Glass' looks just like the old but with the addition of a mono earbud that has the Glass logo on it.  While we can't see any discerning changes on the rest of the device the apparent reason for the new model was to afford compatibility with colored and prescription lenses, so perhaps the frame that holds a potential lens has been changed.  Current owners have 60 days to do a swap for the new hardware and can choose to get the same or choose a new color from their original.  All of this of course is part of Google's slow ramping up of Glass as it heads towards mass adoption in the not so distant future.

Yep, looks exactly the same with the exception of some sort of hinge that's supposed to be able to attach to prescription lenses.

Are you going to do the exchange and get the new hardware model?  Did you already?
