Want Google Glass? Google’s Selling It For One Day On April 15

Although a wider consumer launch of Google Glass is still expected to happen later this year, the Glass Explorer program is running along and slowly getting bigger as Google occasionally sends out additional invites to interested people.

It’s going to get a little bigger next week, too, as Google forgoes the invite process and opens up the Explorer program to any US adult that wants to buy the device. From Google’s announcement:

Next Tuesday, April 15th at 6am PDT, we’re opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US* can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass for $1500 + tax – and it now comes with your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers. The number of spots available is limited, so mark your calendar if you want to get in.

That’s the same price that Glass has been offered to Explorers all along, but this is the first time Google has offered to throw in one of the new prescription-friendly frames as part of the deal. Those sell separately for $225 apiece.

The asterisk up there in Google’s announcement references an apology that it’s for US residents only. “We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries,” Google says.

If interested, here’s the place to order.
