Google Glass, the extraordinary gadget that renovates eyeglasses into a spy-movie worthy advanced technology, may soon die an early death as the technology that was being considered as the future of the smart eyewear has witnessed a sheer decline in public interest.
The report was published in an article by Reuters.
Search giant Google had introduced it nearly two years ago and now its popularity seems to be fading, due to which the company has finally decided to take the drastic step.
The depressing picture of the Glass was painted by Google co-founder Sergey Brin during a Silicon Valley red-carpet event on Sunday.
Even though the gadget popped up for nearly two years at high-profile events, Google’s smart eyewear has failed to escape the public derision surrounding the new technology on which it is based.
The Reuters report also points out that the night may never be over for Google’s Glass as it may never be able to transform itself from the stigma of being worthy for Glassholes.
Brin, Google X Labs chief that heads moonshot projects of Google like Google Glass, expressed the fading interest in the Glass with his actions after he stepped out for the first time without wearing his trusty Glass at the red carpet media event.
This fueled huge speculations among the tech industry that the search engine, which is known for its innovations in almost every sector, is giving up on the smart eyewear that was the hotly hyped earlier and now has become the hotly hated gadget.
According to the Reuters, when Ben was asked about his favorite Glass then he had reportedly said that he has left it in his car.
Even if Glass holds the potential to become a very useful technology in many specialized fields including health care, defence and manufacturing, it has failed up to turn out as a big hit for consumers.
