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.
