Report: Google Glass to be made in the U.S.

SAN FRANCISCO

The Financial Times reports the futuristic digital eyewear will be assembled in Santa Clara at a factory run by Taiwan-based Foxconn. That's the same contractor that assembles iPhones and iPads.

This would be a major boost for U.S. electronics manufacturing since most tech companies have moved their production to Asia.

Google glasses use voice-activated software and a small touch pad to operate a digital camera, send emails and display information from the internet on a tiny screen that sits above the user's right eye.
