Google’s (GOOG) highly anticipated wearable computing device will reportedly be manufactured in the United States. According to the Financial Times, the company has contracted Foxconn to assemble Google Glass at a facility in Santa Clara, California. Google previously manufactured its Nexus Q media streaming device in the U.S., although the product was later scrapped after negative feedback. Manufacturing locally will allow the company to closely monitor the production process and give its engineers the ability to provide any necessary last-minute fixes.
