google glass explorer

In case you haven’t heard our bazillion reminders up until this point, here’s another: you can now buy the Google Glass, if you want.

The Explorers program is open to anyone willing to drop $1,500 for what’s essentially a long beta test for an emerging product. Of course, you have to live in the US to get in on it (otherwise you’ll want an overseas buddy to help you out if you’ve got the dough), and you’ll also have to do it by the end of the day.

That $1,500 will go toward the initial unit you get and likely any revisions that Google may or may not issue ahead of the device’s consumer release (the date of which we’re still not sure of).

You’ll also be able to choose between one frame or shade attachment, the former of which will be necessary for those who wear glasses and want to get their glass outfitted with prescription lenses. The base Glass unit itself is available in black, white, red, blue or gray.

Hear all you need to know? Get over there to order now, and hurry up because today is the only day you’re guaranteed entry into the Explorers program. Otherwise, you may have to wait for more invites to head out, and there’s no telling when or if that’ll ever happen.
