Neither the massive investments in research and product development with an extensive test group of enthusiasts formed enrolled in Glass Explorer program has not given the desired results.

In a tacit acknowledgment of a catastrophic failure, Google passed to removal of all references to the Google Glass, starting with the official website of Glass Explorer program.
