At midnight today, a brief but genuinely intriguing experiment in Google’s history comes to an end. The tech giant’s first foray into wearables will conclude as it officially halts sales of Google Glass. The $1,500 USD product represented Google’s vision of merging online activity and real world behavior in a new way, with features like real time video streaming from its built-in camera, voice recognition and Google Search results that appear right on the Glass’s lenses. But while highly innovative, Glass proved to be highly polarizing as well – the social stigma of wearing Glass was overwhelming, and the camera’s hidden nature raised concerns about privacy. Yet despite the resistance, Google maintains that it is still committed to the Glass program, with hopes of designing new versions that have more mass market appeal. Product lead Tony Fadell recently stated, “You’ll start to see new versions of Google Glass when they’re ready.” So if you don’t manage to grab a Google Glass before midnight today, rest assured this won’t be your last chance. Head over to Google Play now to get your own Google Glass.
