Google to have a fresh look at Glass device

0

Tony Fadell, the executive that Google put in charge of its Glass wearable device, says there will be “no sacred cows” when the company begins its rethink of the product.

In January, Google suspended sales of the test versions of the device, having previously suggested the high-tech spectacles would go on general sale by the end of 2014.

Mr Fadell, chief executive and founder of Nest Labs, the smart home device maker bought by Google for $3.2 billion in 2014, was appointed to oversee the Glass project.

This unexpected reversal came after the general public turned against Glass, and Google’s ambitious attempt to create a new category in the personal electronics market ran into complaints about privacy.

In his first public comments about Glass since taking the role, Mr Fadell indicated that a big rethink was likely.
“We’ve decided to go and look at every detail, have no sacred cows and figure out the way forward,” he said at the Google Zeitgeist conference near London. “I have a really engaged team, they’re really excited about the future and expect more things to come soon.”
