It sounds like Google is anticipating a rush, but won’t say how many pairs of the specs are actually available to buy, so opening up the program to “everyone” comes with a “while supplies last” caveat.
“We learned a lot when we opened our site a few weeks ago, so we’ve decided to move to a more open beta,” Google writes. “We’re still in the Explorer Program while we continue to improve our hardware and software, but starting today anyone in the US can buy the Glass Explorer Edition, as long as we have it on hand.”
There will be an even wider consumer release at some point in the future, as well, but again, as wide a release as there can be for the kind of person who wants to spend that dough.
“We’re ready to keep meeting new Explorers, and we can’t wait to hear all your experiences and feedback to continue to make Glass even better, ahead of our wider consumer release.
