We let the cat out of the bag, you marked your calendars, and the time has finally arrived. If you're a US resident who is 18+, you can purchase Glass and join the Explorer Program at glass.google.com/getglass.
The Explorer bundle costs $1500+tax and includes your favorite shade or frame, a charger, a case and a mono earbud. As an Explorer, your feedback will help to shape how Glass evolves over time.
We’ve got a limited number of spots available, so don’t wait too long – we can't wait to meet you and hear about your first adventures with Glass.
However, many of the most important institutions (e.g., banks) have historically done a poor job of being transparent about security problems and so it seems a bit naive to assume that they would give us the whole story in this case.
Oh, and it's not mentioned there, but Bluetooth low energy support (a.k.a. Bluetooth Smart or Bluetooth 4.0) works as of XE16 too :)
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: http://google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one
We’re excited to meet our new Explorers, and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts about Glass.
*To everyone outside the US... we know. Sorry :( We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries.
