For today — and today only — Google Glass will be available for purchase to the public . For $1,500, you too can wear a computer on your face, though the white model is sold out .
Previously, only selected applicants chosen for the Google Glass Explorer Program had the opportunity to buy the expensive tech. But until tomorrow, everyone can get their hands on Google's silver unibrow!
Google's smart augmented-reality spectacles can take high-quality photos, offer hands-free navigation, and deliver notifications right to your eyeball . . . but can they catch on with the public? Gadget geeks wearing the eyewear are sometimes referred to as "Glassholes," a stigma Google tried to break with a guide to Glass etiquette .
Perhaps unleashing the wearable tech to the public will transform Glass's public image from an exclusive tech toy for the Silicon Valley elite to another hands-free gadget option that frees us from looking down at our smartphones.
