It started with Google Glass

Smart glasses from Google were created in 2013 and were one of the first devices of this kind available to consumers. They could be bought for $ 1,500 and a giant revolution was anticipated in the market. However, time has shown that society was not ready for it and the device did not hit the mainstream. Privacy breaches were feared, and even some restaurants completely banned the use of this gadget. Adding numerous underdeveloped and fairly low sales, Google apparently decided to focus on the development of other models of smart glasses. The future will show if the company will profit from it.
