Leading Google Glass engineer joins Facebook to work on Oculus [Updated]

Adrian Wong, lead electrical engineer on Glass, has left Google to join Facebook. What's a guy like Wong doing at Facebook with his skill set? He's joining the Oculus team to work on the virtual reality.

The move is confirmed by an updated bio on his LinkedIn page. His last day at Google came nearly two weeks ago. On Friday, May 2nd, he posted a goodbye message on Facebook addressed to his fellow employees at Google. At Google, he was responsible for the main PCB and display electronics subsystems used by Glass.

Good luck to Wong on his future working on Oculus.

Update: There's some more bodies being shuffled and moved around within the Google Glass team. TechCrunch reports that Ivy Ross is now the head of Google Glass. She comes to Google from Art.com where she was in charge of marketing. Prior to that she's held high level marketing jobs at companies like Disney, Mattel, Coach, Old Navy and The Gap.
