Google Is Hitting The Road To Drum Up Interest In Google Glass

google-glass-logo-200pxGoogle is taking Google Glass on the road.

The company has announced plans to visit cities around the U.S. and give locals a chance to not only learn about Google Glass, but also to give the device a hands-on try.

… we’re going to start bringing Glass to cities across the US so you can give it a spin. You’ll be able to try on Glass, ask questions and chat with the Glass team in person.

The first event is happening next week — October 5th — in Durham, North Carolina. The RSVP page reveals that it’s an all-day event, running from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Google promises that it’ll be taking Glass to other cities after Durham, but didn’t announce any details.

The device is expected to start selling to the public sometime in 2014.
