Foxconn will make Google Glasses

Posted by a staff writer

Google has decided that Foxconn will get the contract for its internet eyeware, Project Glass.

According to the Irish Times,  the specs, designed by Google and featuring software and cameras, will be made by the Taiwanese company at its factory in California. It means that Google will not have to worry about too many of staff creating PR disasters by throwing themselves off buildings.

Google co-founder Sergey Brin claims that Project Glass is the future of mobile computing and will kill off the "emasculating" smartphone.

So far fashion designers, skydivers, acrobats and pilots have been used by Google to demonstrate the eyeglass computers on the search engine's website.  So far, however, Project Glass makes people look like Joe90 or Clark Kent.

Google plans to invite a limited number of users to test the interactive glasses in the next few days.
