After what seems like an eternity of waiting,smartglasses are open to everyone, not just developers. Everyone who has $1,500 to burn, at least.
If you thought Google would decrease the cost of its smartglasses to make them more consumer-friendly, you'll be sorely disappointed. On the other hand, Google is throwing in a "free" pair offor the money.
Google is the first to sell smartglasses, but won't be for long. Last CES, we saw a fair number of concepts at various stages, and earlier this weekthat could rival Glass.
I am curious how Google Glass sells now that it's available to everyone, and now that the novelty has worn off. Smartwatches, on the other hand, are cheaper, easier to wear, and have a much-lower profile.
Given that these are still the clunky Explorer Edition glasses on sale, it's likely that the next pair we see pop up on Play will have.
