Search giants Google have revealed that they are ending the Glass Explorer program next week.

Businesses and developers may still be able to get their hands on one, but the company will cease public sales of Google Glass on January 19.

However, the wearable isn’t being abandoned to the public completely though: Glass is simply finishing its run as part of the Google X experimental unit, with Nest CEO Tony Fadell now chief-in-command for the program. Google acquired Nest last year.

The product is being upgraded to its own entity within Google. The program will continue to be led by Ivy Ross who, along with the rest of the Glass team, will report to Fadell.

Current users will still be able to use their devices and have them covered under warranty, but whether they will continue to receive official software upgrades is unclear.
