Google Glass: Today’s Your Day To Get One

As previously reported, Google recently announced that any adult in the U.S. can sign up to become a “Glass explorer,” and purchase a Google Glass for one day only: April 15th, which just happens to be today.

Here’s what Google said last week:

Whoops. So… we’d planned to post this next week, but it looks like the cat’s out of the bag now. Over the past several months, we’ve been trying out different ways to expand the Explorer program. Some of you signed up at Google I/O, some told us what you would do #ifihadglass , some were referred by a friend, some joined through their school or university. Our Explorers are moms, bakers, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better. But every day we get requests from those of you who haven’t found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too. So in typical Explorer Program fashion, we’re trying something new.

Next Tuesday, April 15th at 6am PDT, we’re opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US* can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass for $1500 + tax – and it now comes with your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers. The number of spots available is limited, so mark your calendar if you want to get in. You can find us on Tuesday at:

So far, there’s no indication on the landing page that they’re sold out, so you might still be able to one. That is if you want to pay that much money for a product that’s still so early in its development.
