Product designer is the first person to lose his Google Glass
Google Glass, Google's then-top secret product, which is basically a wearable computer device outfitted with a display mounted in the head, isn't available in the market yet. But lately we've seen developers and designers happilly teasing the device. Of course, Google needs the brilliance of developers and product designers to help make Google Glass a remarkable product. However, turning over the device to a complete stranger, or worse, a competitor, is the last thing that Google wants.
This is exactly the case with product designer Luke Wroblewski who lost his unit while at the airport. According to Wroblewski, it slipped from his bag as he went through the airport security. "It's pretty nerve-racking. It’s an expensive and still-rare item, plus I’ve been using them to develop Glassware. So it's not good on a number of fronts,” he added. On the bright side of things, Wroblewski holds the record for the first person unlucky enough to lose his Google Glass.
