Google wipes Glass from the Internet

Dubbed by Komando.com as one of the biggest tech fails of 2014, Google Glass has finally been completely wiped from the Internet. The project was officially shelved back in February of 2015, but now, the product has been wiped from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and even Google +.

It's not hard to imagine why Google Glass failed. After all the hype, nobody - and I mean nobody - wanted one. It's a cool concept, but it failed to take off because it's too expensive ($1,500) and not all that practical for consumers.

Google Glass also had a whole host of privacy concerns and other legal issues. It tried to prove the rumors wrong with a blog post designed to "myth bust" but that wouldn't help.

Google has yet to comment, but left this message on a redirected support page for Glass.

Hi Explorers, we’ve had a blast hanging out with you on G+ throughout the Explorer Program.

But that's not to say Google Glass is completely gone forever. Google is keeping Glass alive as Project Aura, which has filed three patents for Glass-like devices in 2015. There is also a sports version in development and another one similar in design to Google Glass, to be used by companies.
