The new generation of Google Glass will be created from scratch

Edition of The New York Times published an article about the history of the origin and goes on sale the first generation of Google Glass, which resulted in the decision to roll the program of public trials and rethink the device. In fact, responsible for the development of “smart” glasses next generation of engineers and designers tasked to create a new device from scratch. The project Google Glass, according to some, now heads the “father» iPod and head of the newly acquired company Nest Tony Fadell.

Experiment with Google Glass in its current form considered a failure. By the way, it was public testing could play a negative role in the life of the product. When access to the prototype of the gadget was limited, some potential users were generated high expectations, and eventually they got expensive and far from perfect toy, which find good use in its current form is not so simple. Google Glass next generation will not be tested in public. The broad masses of the device will be presented only after the developers consider it sufficiently “mature”.
