Have you been wanting to pick up a Google Glass, but couldn't snag an invite? Today is your lucky day as Google has opened up Glass sales to anyone living in the U.S. who is willing to splurge on the $1500 price tag. Keep in mind this offer is available for today only and tomorrow it will go right back to an invite only program. To purchase your own Glass unit during this special sale, you need to visit this link and proceed through the signup process.
If you have been waiting for an opportunity to become a Google Glass Explorer and test out the product before it hits the retail market, there won't be a better time than today. Glass has made some serious strides since its inception and while the device has a long way to go until it reaches its full potential, the future looks very bright. As a fellow Glass owner and Explorer, I would bet the Glass device will be a major hit once it hits the retail market although the final pricing will be the major determinate as to how successful it will be.
If you do opt to pay the premium price and get your hands on a Glass device ahead of time, I'd advise you to be patient and realize how limited the device is at this current time. While it works great for basic things like SMS/email/handsfree calling, the range of things you can do beyond that is rather scarce although I'd expect some impressive 3rd party apps to hit the scene sometime in the next few months as the API has been opened to all developers since November.
