Google Glass to Go on Sale for One Day
Attention, attention! The tech company's popular gadget is up for grabs next Tuesday.
Getting a pair of Google Glass just got a lot easier, as the tech giant announced Thursday that it will expand its Explorer Program and allow the general public to get their hands on Glass.
On April 15, interested buyers (only U.S. residents are eligible) can visit Google's site and purchase Glass for a whooping $1,500 (plus tax), but space is limited so be sure to set up a reminder in advance because it's likely these techie frames will sell out quick.
Google has been pushing for a bigger reach with Glass in recent months. In March, the Internet company announced its partnership with Luxottica, the parent company of Ray-Ban and Oakley, to incorporate Glass features into models from the two popular eyewear brands. And in January, Google introduced its new line of hipster-inspired wearable frames, which will be available later this year.
Among the early users in the Explorer phase was Diane von Furstenberg, who wore Google Glass to shoot a short film during during her spring 2013 runway show.
