Google Glass sells out, Explorer Program registration now closed

After yesterday's open-to-all Google Glass sale, Google seems to have run out of the expensive headset. The Glass Explorer program, which previously was open for anybody to sign up (and then maybe be admitted by Google at a later point) is now closed.

Those that end up at the Google Glass website are greeted with this message:

That's all, folks.We're out of spots in the Explorer Program for now, but may have more to share soon.

Google is still accepting applications to the Glass Explorer program, but they're not giving any indication of when they'll actually approve those applications and give you the chance to fork over $1500 for your own Google Glass.

  • No surprise here, but after seeing many of the post "Ellen" comments quite a few people will be. I just wanted to be a scumbag and resale for profit : P
  • i wouldnt be surprised if they dont let you resell this time around either
  • Do you think this one day sale was just intended to rid inventory?

  • It makes sense, to either get rid of what they have for either a new 3.0 device or get ready for the consumer device at I/O to show off
  • Would like to see sales numbers, see how many made it out into the wild Posted via my outdated Droid RAZR Maxx HD using the Android Central App
  • Probably 200. Posted via Android Central App
  • It's over 9000 Posted from my newly Kit Katted Droid Ultra
  • Im calling shenanigans Posted via Android Central App
  • Still got that silica up your vag I see... Posted via Android Central App
  • Considering this is still very much a prototype device, a few hundred is a reasonable guess. I would be shocked if they sold more than 500 the other day. I would imagine this is to clear inventory in preparation for doing a full consumer product run.
  • I'll set it right next to my Nexus Q.
  • I think it's a little early to consider Glass DOA.
