Google announced that it is going to extend its Glass Explorer program to a lot more people in the US for a single day on April 15th starting at 6 am PDT. The Glass will come as part of its existing Explorer Program with an additional shades or prescription lenses thrown in for free for the same rate as before, $1500 USD.
This could be their way of showing their summer clearance sale after which comes the consumer version which could be available by the start of 2015. Existing explorers shared their feelings on Google+ about the price being retained as well as the addition of shades and lenses which they were unhappy about because they didn’t get it. They got the Glass as part of Google’s #What would I do if I had Glass campaign.
Google also claims that Glass will be sold until stocks last only. You could grab one by ordering online here. Watch that page on the D-day to be able to buy the Glass. You will have to be 18 and overand also a resident of the United States.
In recent news, Google also tried to trademark the word ‘Glass’ in the US. But it was rejected as it could be confused with so many other things that businesses like construction use on a day-to day basis. Google is ready to explain how this term can be only associated with their infamous project and how the word itself will remind everyone of their ambitious wearable technology program.
Let us see how many people are truly interested in Glass at the consumer level.
