Google Glass is one of the most anticipated technologies in the market, but it is falling off support in the current times. People’s losing interest in the Google Glass force the company to delay the commercial launch of the device for 2015.
Google Glass is a smart-wear that has been announced by Google X division and it delivers information through the small glass in front of the right eye. The Google Glass comes with RAM of 2GB and it has an internal on-board storage of 16GB that allows the users to store appropriate data in the device.
The device powered with Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 Dual core processor with 2100 mAh battery and has various sensors such as gyroscope, proximity, magnetometer and other necessary sensors. In order to control the Google glass, a small touch pad as well as voice commands is provided by the Google. It also comes with 5 MP camera and it records video at 720p resolution.
Chris O’Neill, Glass Head of Business Operations, said to Reuters,
“We are completely energized and as energized as ever about the opportunity that wearables and Glass in particular represent. We are as committed as ever to a consumer launch. That is going to take time and we are not going to launch this product until it’s absolutely ready.”
In the Google X division, Google Glass was one of the first products in the range. The other development projects that come under the Google X division also include a self driving car of the company. Although the response for Google Glass has been low in the market, the head of the Google X division, Chris O’Neill is still optimistic about the product and believes that fans would appreciate it once launched.
It can be bought at the price of $1500 but the market launch of the device has been pushed back further. There is a great doubt looming in the company’s mind about the potential demand of the device and interest of the fans and hence, the launch date has been pushed further.
According to a latest survey among the app developers, it has been found out that they have lost interest in the development process of the device since it carries too many shortcomings and moreover, people have a little interest in it. Tom Frencel, the CEO of Little Guy Games group stated, “If there was 200 million Google Glasses sold, it would be a different perspective. There’s no market at this point.”
