Google now accepting requests for an invite to become a Glass Explorer

For the first time since Glass started rolling out to developers and contest winners, Google has provided the general public with a direct method to request an invite.

Previously users were only able to submit a request to be kept up to date on Glass news. With the new form, users can indicate why they want Glass, and if they’re interred in buying the Explorer edition or if they simply want to keep up on the latest news.

The page, found here, lays out plans to continue experimenting with expanding the Explorer program, but doesn’t indicate when invites will be issued after a user indicates his or her interest through this new form.

One thing that is abundantly clear is that you need to be a U.S. resident in order to take part. There are some Explorers from different parts of the globe who’ve flown here to get Glass previously, however those same Explorers are now left with the expensive dilemma of sticking with v1 of Glass or paying to travel back to the U.S. to swap for v2, as Google will not ship Glass outside of the country.
