- Product Type: Smart Glasses
At one point, Google marketed its Google Glass device like it was going to be the “next big thing.” In a way, it seemed like it could be. At a 2012 Google event, they showed a live stream of skydivers wearing the Google Glass in the air and as they landed on top of the convention center the event was held. This seemed awesome, but then Google being Google, freaked people out. Many did not know if the camera would stop or could be turned on by anyone at any time. Not to mention the idiocy of wearing glasses as “fashion” that isn’t protecting them from the sun. This became one of the most infamous failed tech products ever, but Google has since tried to make it work through the newer augmented reality sector. Therefore, they might not be gone just yet.
