Google Glass

Today and today only, anybody in the United States with the drive to click a few buttons and $1,500 burning a hole in their pocket can buy their very own Google Glass headset and earn the vaunted title of "Glass Explorer". It's an exclusive-ish club, previously reserved for those who Google so anointed and those to whom the anointed sent invites.

The availability is good for just today, but there's a bit of a bonus thrown in for customers: when buying a Google Glass today, Google will throw in your choice of sunglass shades (normally a $150 addition) that attach to the default wrap-around metal band or a pair of frames for prescription lenses (normally $225). Of course, you'll need to get the prescription lenses to go in those frames on your own, but it's a nice little bonus to get considering that you're plunking down $1,500 to try out a headset with admittedly limited functionality for the normal person.

But they're so cool. So there's that.

Are you game? Cool. Get your credit card ready and hit the source link below to get your very own Google Glass.
