Google halts production of Google Glass

Google has announced that it will stop producing Google Glass in its present form.

The company said that it is still committed to launching the product, but will develop a more affordable and attractive version.

Instead, Google will focus on “future versions of glass” with work carried out by a different division then before.

Customers could get their hands on the eyewear when the company launched the Explorer Edition last year.

The Explorer Edition cost customers in the UK £1,000, but this will now close.

The consumer version of the device was set to launch some time this year, and features a thumb-sized screen above the wearer’s eye.

There were also security concerns surrounding Google Glass, after researchers revealed that the eyewear could steal PIN codes.
