Dismissing rumours that the tech giant was killing Google Glass following its dismal reception in the tech market, Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt has said that the technology behind Glass was "too important to throw away" and that the program has been put under the control of Nest's Tony Fadell to "make it ready for users" in the future.
If you thought the eye-wearable device Google Glass is dead, think again! The new team at Google Glass wants to "redesign the product from scratch and not release it until it is complete", says a New York Times report.
Google Glass may face some tough competition from a San Francisco-based company which plans to develop smart Bluetooth-enabled glasses that display HD video and are equipped with a global navigation satellite system.
Although the immediate commercial future of Google Glass appears bleak, a series of apps to be showcased here this coming weekend and deployable on that wearable computer provide a glimpse into its long-range potential.
What if an app can reveal what the person you are in a conversation with is thinking? This Google Glass - a soon to be launched smart eye-wear - app not only does that for you but can also tell the person's age!
Focus hard and you will be able to control Google Glass with your thoughts alone. Yes, your power of thoughts can give the computer eyewear commands to do certain things, like taking a picture and even posting it to Facebook.
