Google allows U.S. residents become Glass Explorers

Google explands Glass Explorer program to all US residents[1]

Google has yet to launch its Glass to general consumers, but it is taking a giant step towards mass production. The tech company opens the Glass Explorer program to everyone in the United States beginning April 15, as long as they can shell out $1,500 (plus taxes). Google will even ship them in their favorite shade or prescription frame.

The program is only available to a limited number of spots, so it is best to buy them early beginning 6:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday (9:00 a.m. ET).

For those living outside the United States, Google would glady take your $1,500, but it is “not ready to bring Glass to other countries” as of this posting.

Expanding the Explorer pool apart from the first batch of beta testers (before sending invites to their friends and family) could halt the negative perception surrounsing Glass Explorers, who have received unflattering nicknames like “Glassholes[2].”
