Project Aura has developed a foldable version of Google Glass that can be stored in pockets, according to an FCC filing.

Thanks to FCC filings, we have some idea of what Project Aura, the division of Google responsible for wearable technology, has been working on.

One of its Glass iterations, which seems to be designed for the workplace, is a familiar looking device, but it has a hinge so it can be folded up and stored in pockets.

The new Glass will reportedly support 5GHz Wi-Fi and contain a better built-in battery, faster Intel processor, and improved camera. The Wall Street Journal maintains that the prism expands the field of view of Glass' floating display. And the new model will also be waterproof and more durable so it can withstand falls and other physical damage.

Google is yet to even acknowledge this device's existence, but partners in Google's Glass for Work program have reportedly gotten their hands on some headsets.

Those who have been keeping an eye on this Google adventure will be eagerly awaiting an announcement that there will be a consumer version of this device. Stay tuned for more news from Project Aura.
