At the Explorer price of $1,500, you will be getting a beta product in both hardware and software, but previously you had to be accepted by Google to get a device, and there were under 10,000 "Explorers."
Says the search giant: "Last week we told you we'd be trying out new ways to find Explorers. Well, we weren't kidding. We learned a lot when we opened our site a few weeks ago, so we've decided to move to a more open beta. We're still in the Explorer Program while we continue to improve our hardware and software, but starting today anyone in the US can buy the Glass Explorer Edition, as long as we have it on hand.
We're ready to keep meeting new Explorers, and we can't wait to hear all your experiences and feedback to continue to make Glass even better, ahead of our wider consumer release."
You can place on order for Glass here: Google Glass. Google will also include free shades and frames with the purchase.
