Prospective Google Glass buyers can "try on" before buying

Glass-21

Google is making it easier for those wanting to purchase Google Glass but are hesitant in spending the rather large $1500 for a pair. Google has launched a new free Home Try-On Program allowing potential customers to find what color and frame style they want before committing to the purchase.

The package allows customers to receive a package with Glass in four different colors along with the different styles of prescription frames. Google place a $50 hold on your credit card until they receive the home kit back, but otherwise the Home Try-On kit is completely free.

Now before you think that $50 is a small price to pay to not send back four Google Glass devices, they are non-functional. You’ll get Google Glass devices in Charcoal, Tangerine, Shale, and Sky, and have 10 days to return the kit to Google using the prepaid shipping label.

So if you were wondering what Glass feels like before purchasing, then the Home Try-On program is for you.
