The fate of Google Glass has been up in the air these past few months, as developers seem to have stopped paying attention to the new-age eyewear and Glasshole sightings have decreased significantly. But Glass isn’t done yet: Google’s announcing today Glass is “graduating” from the Google X experimental projects incubator to become its own independent division – a division that will report into Nest’s Tony Fadell. Current Glass head Ivy Ross will retain day-to-day authority, but she’ll report to Fadell. Nest itself will remain separate and independent, and Tony will still be in charge there as well.
If you can sell a thermostat and smoke detector, you can pretty much sell anything. Maybe Fadell knows what to do with Glass.
I thought that Google Glass was simply not interesting for the media to cover anymore because nothing new is going on over there and the shock-reactions are over
And I have never seen any Nest product in real life (are they even sold here in The Netherlands / Europe?)
It seems he only had 2 “smart” products, of which he had to recall 1 but sold it to Google because they needed a bigger hardware presence. All these products fall under “hype” for me, but I guess that is “cool” or “future” for others
