Google is killing its super-hyped Google Glass product, crushing the dreams of millions of humans who have always wanted, deep down, to be half robot. Google is no quitter, though. The company plans to resurrect Google Glass in the future. It put former Nest CEO Tony Fadell in charge of the Glass outfit. (Google paid billions for Nest–gotta put these guys to work!)
Given the rough seas Google Glass faced in the marketplace, expect its return to happen under a new name. Google Glass was too expensive and it wasn’t sexy enough for an wearable accessory–sexy robots still being on the distant horizon. If you’re a collector of defunct technology, you have until January 19 to pick up the Google Glass Explorer edition, according to a team post at Google+.
