Google will open the online gates and take orders for Glass starting April 15 at 6 a.m. PDT online from anyone who wants to fork over $1,500 for the wearable Web-ready devices, the company announced in a blog post.
“Our Explorers are moms, bakers, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better,” the company writes. “But every day we get requests from those of you who haven’t found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too. So in typical Explorer Program fashion, we’re trying something new. ”
It’s only for a limited time, however, and the quantity will be limited. Google’s not saying how many it’ll sell, only that “spots are limited.” That just means more fodder for the hype machine.
