Just over a year ago, Google officially revealed Google Glass, its upcoming eyewear-computing product. Since then, the company has only let a very limited number of developers and members of the public purchase an early Explorer version of Google Glass. Next week, that will change, for one day only.
In a post on their official Google+ page, the Glass team revealed that on Tuesday, April 15th (yes, that's also the deadline for turning in federal taxes) anyone in the U.S. can sign up to purchase an Explorer version of the product. The price for this prototype won't change; it will still cost $1,500, plus tax. However, it's expected that high price won't stop a ton of people from trying to get their hands on Google Glass.
The note says there will be a "limited" number of spots available for people to get Glass but it doesn't go into specifics. Needless to say, if a person really, really wants to get one of these devices, they had better be one of the first in line. Sales of Glass will begin at 6 am Pacific Time (9 am Eastern Time).
Google has said they plan to launch a consumer version of Glass sometime before the end of 2014, but there's no word on what its price will be like.
