Google Glass

Google Glass sales halted but firm says kit is not dead

I remember there being a bit of hype when Google Glass was announced.  I was interested in the idea, much more then the idea of a smartwatch.  The reception seemed to turn increasingly lukewarm though.  I wonder when we'll see them bring it back from this apparent hiatus.

Interesting. I thought it would go from strength to strength but I suppose people dont like looking silly.
It would be an awesome way to watch porn and I bet you could make great running apps/AR games for it.

AFAIK, the Google Glasses currently on sale are kind of Dev kit / Test devices. Google are still working on prototypes. If they have a new version in progress, it's not too far fetched to think that they might stop selling/manufacturing the old ones. Google is never shy of cancelling some of their project, if nothing else, it helped people discuss.. made some people dream while other decided that they too should try to innovate. I prefer seeing a company that dreams and do R&D than another company that just milk the customer as much as they can with overpriced product that they iterate every few years.
