Google turns blind eye on wearable Google is ending its push to popularise the $1,500 wearable to consumers

First unveiled in 2012, Google Glass was the gadget for technology enthusiasts, however four years later Alphabet Inc's Google has shut down several social media accounts, including Twitter, Google+, Instagram and Facebook.

A statement on the Google+ page said: "Hi Explorers, we've had a blast hanging out with you on G+ throughout the Explorer Program." It then advised users to get in touch with questions on its support page for Google Glass.

Reported on website 9to5Google, it would appear Google is ending its push to popularise the $1,500 wearable to consumers, and instead reset its strategy and further develop the Glass.

9to5Google blogger Stephan Hall said: "Google Glass isn't dead. Google's front for representing the device in the consumer eye may be gone now, but in the background Glass lives on under the umbrella of Project Aura."

Google revealed last month, Aura is developing a continuation of Google Glass, which has been dubbed as ‘EE' or the ‘Enterprise Edition'.
