Google scrapped Project Iris AR glasses

Google closed the project under the working title Project Iris, in which it developed augmented reality glasses. Business Insider writes about it.

The publication clarifies that Google has decided to focus on software development, not hardware. Google is developing the Micro XR operating system. AR headset manufacturers may use it under license.

Insider also writes that Google decided to shut down Project Iris due to the departure of Clay Bavor, head of AR and VR headset development, and the company’s massive staff cuts.

According to sources, Google started working on Project Iris in January 2022. According to the original plan, the company was supposed to introduce AR glasses in 2024.
