The pictures show a Google Glass unit that looks a lot like the existing Glass design. The biggest change seems to be that the device can now fold up, just like a regular pair of glasses, which will make it much easier to store when you aren't wearing it, Ars Technica reported.

Google has filed patents with the FCC for a new version of the Glass device with photos, internal photos, test reports, test set-up photos, a user manual and information on radio frequency absorption for the device.

According to the user manual, the power button is positioned on the back of the device."The plastic cube just above your right eye allows you to interact with the device. The Home Screen is your starting point. By default, the display shows you the current time," read a document describing the device.

The Glass prism looks longer than the first version of the device, which presumably offers a larger picture."The camera button is located on top of the device near the display. Press the camera button to take a photo. Hold it down to record a video. The green light shows when the camera is on," it added.
