Google Glass as we know it is coming to an end. Sales of the smart glasses to individual customers will be halted Jan. 19, according to a company statement.

“In the meantime, we’re continuing to build for the future, and you’ll start to see future versions of Glass when they’re ready,” Glass’s Google+ page reads.

Glass is moving from the Google X research lab to its own standalone department, Time reports. The Google Glass unit will continue to be headed up by Google executive Ivy Ross. But Ross and the Glass team will report to Nest CEO Tony Fadell, though Glass will remain independent, without becoming a part of Nest.

“The changes usher in a new strategy for Glass in which it will shun large, public tests of prototypes in favor of the same approach used by Apple and Nest, which develop consumer gadgets in secret and release them as fully finished products,” The Wall Street Journal said.
