Google Looks to Motorola, Could Handle Future Google Glass Production Outright

project glass6

In a comment recently made by Motorola’s CEO Dennis Woodside, the opportunity to produce Google Glass outright for the search giant could someday happen. According to Woodside, his company already handles some of the thought process behind manufacturing issues Google has been met with, but Moto does not currently produce units themselves. As of now, neither company is giving any word on when that would take place, but we would assume it could happen around the time Google plans on mass producing the headsets. 

There have been reports that a public launch of Glass could happen around the holidays of this year or even sometime next year. It’s been very unclear, and until we hear actual word from Google on an official release, nothing is confirmed.

Moto-made Google Glass – can you dig it?

    Does this mean Google Glass is USA and Canada only? Just like Moto X? Bloody Moto.

  • If they make it like they did the Droid lineup you can bet they will be nearly indestructible!


    DROID Glass. Coming soon to Verizon.

    Wow there is a lot of entitlement in this comment section, and most of it isn’t even related to Glass!

    • When reading comments on DL, you’d think that Motorola came to each of their houses and kicked their dog while it was sleeping. lol

    For the love of all that is holy, please find an attractive lady to model these for press releases. Or maybe just not such a close-up picture?
    I used to think all the Samsung/HTC/LG models were over the top, but in reality they were just erring on the side of caution.

    Google need to use Moto as a hardware arm of the company to make glass, watches and chromecast. Moto makes hardware use them.

  • Who knew you could put a 720p screen in Google Glass.

  • Tony Byatt

    Better be a Google Play device, in stock at Amazon first, and of course reasonably priced…

    • And then they will remove the special offer hours after they are announced. Google is not good at launching devices.

      Moto, however, has had the buzz for months.

    Dammit Gabe you beat me to it!

  • Stewie

    Announcing the improved Google Glass – with a Pentile display linked to the glass …

  • Bob G

    Made in the USA.

  • Charles Hobbs

    There goes all hope of a reasonable price tag…

  • Mayoo

    They will down the specs BUT you can have wood finish and the second latest OS version!!! … only on AT&T … oh and go to hell UK.

    • jt O’Brien

      Actually a wood finished glass would be pretty dope

    I would love to see a partnership with Oakley to make these things.

    • WHATTTTT. You mean Warby Parker (already discussed).

      Oakley is some outdated 90’s looking junk. You look like a center fielder wearing those.

      • Stephen Gaskins Jr.

        Apparently you haven’t seen a pair of Oakley glasses since the 90’s. They make more than one style.

        • PhillipCun

          maybe we haven’t seen it since the 90’s because no one wears them anymore…

      • Mike Hilal

        rayban or ban

        • michael arazan

          Or Gargoyles from the 80’s that were in the original terminator. Personally I use ray bans, tried and true, but slightly over priced thanks to hipsters

          • Aaron Sullivan

            Get mine from the dollar store,lol

      • James Collyer

        warby parker is cheap crap. it feels flimsy compared to other companies like ray ban or oakley

  • jayray78

    ….and the price of Glass just went up.

    • jt O’Brien

      Turns out the devs got it for cheap. The public MSRP is $5000 because it’s made in America. Go moto.

  • Jason Downing

    Sooo what you’re saying is.. Google will be making Google Glass?

    • Stnkycheezman

      Unless you think foxconn makes iPhones

  • jose

    I can see it already. AT&T exclusive or Droid-branded Glass. Here’s Verizon’s chance to market the hell out of DROOOOID ‘red eye’ :p

    • PhillipCun

      …. you do know that google glass connects to your phone right? it’s not an independent device. doesn’t require a carrier.

      • master94

        I think it was a joke on VZW obsession with branding and making everything a Droid

        • Bryan

          I think it’s more a knock on Motorola’s botched launch of the Moto X, with AT&T exclusives and similar Droid phones on Verizon.

  • Assembled in the USA, too, I assume! And there will be custom colors. Wow, Motorola is about to DOMINATE.

    • Mayoo

      +1 because I think your Troll is plain awesome!

  • Game Changer. Noun. Definition – Everything Motorola does.

    • JoshGroff

      Apple* ftfy. 😉 (according to them)
