Oh wow, I just received an invitation from Google Glass to become an Explorer. Here’s a copy of the invite, but I blocked out a few private bits of information.
The offer expires in seven days. Oh why, oh why Google Glass right before Christmas? You know I want to be an Explorer, but what about the cost? How much is it?
Of course I clicked the “Get Glass” button. I had to know the price they were offering. I was hoping for beta tester pricing. Here’s what I got.
Google Glass: “What is that?” “What does it do?” “What do you see?”
Basically you see a small screen in the top corner with brief snippets of information. For me personally, that might be troublesome as my eye sight isn’t too good anymore for close vision. I need Google to get me some special lenses, maybe progressive in nature so that corner is a clean sharp image.
What you can do with Google Glass:
- Take a picture
- Record a video
- Get Directions
- Send a message
- Do phone calls
- Google+ Hangouts
- Google search

Google Glass also comes with a variety of accessories that of course you’d want to have to make the Glass experience the total package.
I won’t be jumping in just yet. The price point is pretty steep, a whopping $1,725 with all the accessories. Plus, my eye sight just won’t work well with these until they come with prescription lenses. I do think making videos with Glass will be awesome, but for now I just have to strap my GoPro to my head and look like the geek I am. (No pictures included)
