Google puts Nest’s Tony Fadell in charge of Glass

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.
