Google Glass didn’t entirely meet its projections after release, yet the progressive device has now found an ulterior purpose with one of Google’s most famous customers.

A report suggests that Tesla is using Google’s “Google Glass Enterprise” at its Fremont factories. This finding was confirmed by APX Labs, a company that provides software for smart glasses. It used images of Tesla’s factory as stock imagery on its website and lists the electric car company as a client. In another image from the company, its Skylight software is being used in a factory with multiple Tesla Model S vehicles.
