Google Glass Available To New Users Everywhere Today
Calling all geeks! On April 15th at 9am EDT, you’ll have a limited time chance to join the Google Glass Explorer Program.
Google Glass is not commercially available yet; it’s been available only to Google Glass Explorers — in other words, only through a very limited beta-testing program.
Now, Google is opening up the program and folks in the U.S. will be able to get the Glass for $1500 + tax. Google has apologized to everyone else, saying it’s “just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries.” The price is steep, but at least Google will throw in frames or a shade of your choice.
To get the Glass, you need to be 18 years old, and you need to be a U.S. resident with a U.S. shipping address. Then, click here today, April 15, at 9am ET. Be fast, as the number of spots available is limited.
And, if you’re wondering what Glass is good for, well, you can browse the web with it, you can create stop motion videos with it, take sneaky photos and more. Or you can just be a regular human and leave the Glasshole antics to everyone else. #sorrynotsorry
I’m personally not a fan of Google Glass. There’s nothing technically fashionable and the one-eye look creeps me out. Plus, I believe that too much multitasking or over-dosing on technology ruins enjoying the world you live in (and doesn’t enhance it.) That’s just my opinion. What’s yours? Would you shell out $1500 to purchase Google Glass for yourself?
