Glass is still a ways off from becoming a product sitting on store shelves alongside Ray-Bans and Oakley glasses.
But while Google is working to give Glass an image of cutting-edge cool rather than nerdy niche, it’s also hoping to keep up anticipation for what arguably will be one of the company’s most important gadget launches. With some hype-building in mind, Google is selling Glass to anyone in the U.S. for one day only April 15.
Headsets will go on sale at 9 a.m. ET at glass.google.com, for the usual full price of $1,500 plus tax. To purchase a pair, you have to a U.S. mailing address and be at least 18 years old.
This is the first time Glass has been made available to the entire American public. As of April 16, sales will revert back to invite only. Only a few thousand people have Glass today. Google calls these folks Expolorers — a group of consumers and developers serving as guinea pigs testing the hardware.
