Glass, Google's highly anticipated smart device, will reportedly be manufactured in Santa Clara, Calif.
The Financial Times on Wednesday reported that the "futuristic digital eyewear" will be put together at a U.S. facility run by Foxconn, the Taiwanese manufacturer best known for assembling iPhones, iPads and other Apple devices. The report cites unnamed sources familiar with the matter.
In recent years, U.S. tech companies have been turning to Asia to assemble their hardware, but President Obama has been pushing for them to reconsider manufacturing their devices in the U.S. Late last year, Apple was the first major U.S. company to take the proposition seriously when it announced that it would start building one line of its Mac computers in the U.S. starting in 2013.
Google isn't commenting on the story, so the report could end up being wrong. But if Google does indeed decide to manufacture Glass in California, it will be a big boost for the return of U.S. electronics manufacturing.
