Google Fresh Out of Glass, Explorer Program Now Closed

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 7 comments

Google gave consumers a chance to try (or rather, buy) its wearable computer with its Explorer Program. Anybody who signed up for the Explorer Program on Tuesday had the option of buying Google Glass for $1,500.  

The sale was apparently a smash hit, as Google is now fresh out of Google Glass. The Google Glass Explorer web page now reads: "That's all, folks. 

"We're out of spots in the Explorer Program for now, but may have more to share soon. Sign up below to stay updated. 

"To discover new places, sometimes we need to leave the map behind. And that's what Glass Explorers do. They are the first to make, to tinker, to create, to shape, and to share through Glass. We're expanding little by little, and experimenting with different ways of bringing new Explorers into the program." 

The sign up form is still open for anyone interested to fill out. Unfortunately, because of the giant one-off sale, it might be some time before Google opens up the Explorer program. Google has yet to reveal any figures about how many pairs of Google Glass it managed to sell during the one-day sale.

    I would much rather see that chick pictured without Google Glass.

    "Google Fresh Out of Glass"....Tears flowed from wanna be glass-holes that missed out.

    Those that do pay for a sale might be sorely disappointed, google will remotely brick any device it finds that was resold.

    But if you accidently drop a map, it still works, doesn't require recharging, doesn't bother you with ads and special offers, can be given to friends and copied multiple times without infringing on any copyrights, and is often extremely cheap. :)

    I'd never pay $1,500 for a fad like this, and it's still just first gen too. It's just stupid.
