Google Glass can be bought by anyone in US for $1500

It looks like Google’s recent one day only sale of Glass was a massive success for the company as they have now announced that Glass has moved into an open beta and can be brought by anyone on the US for $1500 without an invite.

The announcement that the Glass Explorer Edition is now up for sale was made in a post on Google+ with the decision to do so being made by the response they had to the one day sale a few weeks back. Google also states in the post “We’re still in the Explorer Program while we continue to improve our hardware and software”.

So while this is no commercial launch, Google are obviously wanting to get more people on board to accelerate development and improve the product ready for a wider consumer release later this year.

Glass will only be on sale in the US and while stock of the device lasts.
