    Researchers Use A Fiery Robot To 3D Print Glass

    Glass printing is, as you can imagine, a pretty heady process.

    Google Glass Never Really Had A Fighting Chance

    When Google announced it was ending the Glass Explorer program yesterday and handing over the reins to Nest’s Tony Fadell, it seemed to exit with more of a whimper than a scream.

    Sony Outs Clip-On Smart Glass Module For Sports

    More Sony news. In a pre-CES announcement that’s perhaps hoping to draw eyeballs away from the toxic fallout of the Sony Pictures email hack — or, more likely, hoping to suck up a little oxygenated publicity ahead of the consumer electronic scrum in January — Sony has today announced its own take on Google Glass.
