Google is set to discontinue the sale of its smart eyewear Google Glass, but the tech giant plans to release new, consumer-friendly versions of the device in the future.

Google has announced that it will no longer sell its experimental first version of Glass which went on sale in the United Kingdom last year priced at £1,000.

The company said that the Glass project would not be scrapped, with development continuing towards the creation of a viable consumer product. The company did not indicate, however, when its next version would be made available.

“January 19 will be the last day to get the Glass Explorer Edition. In the meantime, we’re continuing to build for the future, and you’ll start to see future versions of Glass when they’re ready,” the company said.
