Google sending out second wave of Glass Explorer invites

glass explorer invites

Ready for another chance to spend a crap ton of money on experimental products? Google is opening up their Glass Explorer program to a new wave of users, with the company sending email invites for those who signed up on their website to buy their way into the Glass Explorer program. Having the invite alone isn’t enough, though — you’ll also need $1,500 of disposable money for the privilege to own one of the most primitive pieces of tech out there.

Emails are being sent out with one-time-only invite codes, and the codes will only last for 7 days (meaning you’ll need to act fast, or miss out on this second chance at getting into the Explorer program). We’re not sure if another opportunity will come along before Google brings this thing to retail early next year, so jump on it if you just have to have your Glass unit as soon as possible. Check your email for the code if you previously signed up to be notified.

    “One of the most primitive pieces of tech out there? ”

    Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed and forget the meaning of English words?! I don’t think any sane person would call Google Glass primitive tech. Yes, it is still a piece of preview hardware, but it’s far from primitive.

      FYI they’ve shown off the “primitive” versions already. They aren’t what is being shipped to Glass Explorers.

    I received an invitation last night. One thing that I’m curious about is whether people who have already got Glass are using it regularly, and what are they using it for? In short, what benefit makes wearing the device worthwhile? I’m a software developer, and will likely create something to run on Glass, but at the end of the day would I want to use the device personally? Have the people at Phandroid that have Glass stopped using it? Was it a new toy that you lost interest in? There haven’t been any articles about using it since the initial impression.

      I know someone who has had one for at least a week, and they’ve been using it consistently for personal use, although they are also a developer and looking to eventually create apps for it. But…that’s only been for the 1st week, so I’m not sure about the long term use of it.

      That being said, if you don’t use your invite, I’d love to have it. :)

    I got my invite last week only a few days after applying. I didn’t have $1500 ready for it, because I honestly didn’t think I’d see an invite that fast, so I’m going to have to wait for public release I guess unless they do some magic price drop and 2nd chance but I don’t expect it. I got an xbox one to get over the loss since I had enough money for that.

      Could You Email Me Your Code? I Would Love To Try A Pair! You Can Find Me On Facebook.

        Ack, sorry I actually turned it down because they had a survey to ask why you wouldn’t use it and I figured it would free one up. I literally got it in < 1 week though so if you fill out the app on the explorer page, you'll probably get one pretty quickly.
