OK, Brits, it's now your time to start confusing the elderly and getting banned from movie theaters with your very own pair of Google Glass.

Google has just announced that they have opened their beta Explorer program in the UK.

"The world sees the UK as a center (actually, a centre) of innovation. It has produced some of the greatest technology inventors and inventions of the last century, and people on the ground are always excited to explore new products and ideas," says Google.

Google recently opened up the Glass Explorer program to anyone and everyone in the US (as long as they have $1,500 dollars to spare). Google says that this expansion is so that they can garner more feedback about the wearable tech, but it's pretty obvious that Google wants to get as many pairs of Glass out there in the world as they can – as familiarity is a key to acceptance.

And acceptance could be a difficult task.
