Google sending mystery package to Glass Explorers — what’s inside?

google x package

It looks like Google’s being a bit generous to those who decided to spend $1,500 to be among the first to own a pair of Google Glass. Reports are flying in from several Glass Explorers with UPS accounts that shipment notifications are popping up from “GOOGLE X.” Unfortunately the shipment information did not include the weight of the package so it’s tough to say what, exactly, this could be.

We imagine it’s some sort of care package — something to say “thanks for supporting us,” or something to that effect. Could it be a t-shirt? Fancy ink pens? A commemorative prism? A fathead of the Bugdroid wearing a pair of glass?

It could be anything, and considering we’ve had three folks on our own staff hooked up with Google Glass (read our full review here) we’ll be on the lookout to see if these packages exist. If they do, you can be sure we’ll be letting you guys in on all that was packed inside.

    If it’s a check to pay you back the $1500.. I will be spinning in my grave. I had a chance to get an explorer edition but didn’t want to front the $1500.

    • Iwearcoates

      It is not a check because they are still sending explorer invites out I just signed up yesterday so i doubt they would send a check.

    • remister

      That would be great, but a check could just fit in an envelope. You never know, could be sending a big cardboard check, Google be crazy like that.

  • MooseCat

    Wasn’t there something about how Google Glass wasn’t ready to fit on prescription glasses? Maybe this is the adapter/fix.

  • Paul Taylor

    A Google Glass cake.

    Now that we know what glass is, it should be the $1250 back and everyone from now on buys glass for what its worth as a pretty simple addition to your phone $250

    Google X? Clearly this is Google copying Apple for the first time. Enjoy your mountain lion.

      Sure, because Apple invented the letter X as well as i

      Funny you should say that. I got my package about 10 minutes ago and that’s exactly what it was.

        Why did you buy something from Apple then?

    Google Now knew you wanted to see Man of Steel so it’s free movie passes.

    “A commemorative prism?”

    An unfortunate choice of words what with current events and all.

    • AuXroid

      Not at all. Prism averted about a dozen terrorist attacks so in this case the government has done a commendable job.

      • JMcGee

        A person who judges results by weighing only the benefits will always find them favorable. Another with the wisdom to weigh the benefits against the costs may come to another conclusion entirely.

        • AuXroid

          So tell me … how much weight do you attribute to the lives that have been saved? How much for 50 lives, or 3,000?

          • turboboxer

            You are scary

          • AuXroid

            How so?

          • turboboxer

            That you believe that. Really helped all those people in Boston eh?

          • AuXroid

            So they failed to stop 1 out of, say, 13 attacks. Logically speaking then, should they stop the program or rather enhance and broaden it?

          • turboboxer

            Cool story NSA

    It’s a home radiation treatment package!

    Maybe it’s the severed head of Detective Mills’ wife, Tracy…

      • BulletTooth_Tony

        +1. Since that movie had such a gaping plot hole by not explaining what they did with the box afterward, clearly this could be it. That failure to tie up the loose end ruined the whole movie! /s (big time sarcasm ended) ;-)

  • joefresco

    It was delivered yesterday, right? Why haven’t we found out?

  • hemipw54

    It is probably these,, Google is making comparisons to other competing products, these have my vote only $14 bucks at any WalMart.
    God I love the inane, so easy to poke fun at.

    The FIRST article I read online said the weight of the package was less than a pound.


    Not only that but the article makes reference to the t-shirt.

    Did you plagiarize this article Quentyn? Poorly?

  • iandouglas

    Saw a few shots on Google+ today of a sleek black metal water bottle with the Glass logo around the bottom. Wonder if that’s what was sent out.

    So what the hell was it??!
