Google Glass went on sale in the UK yesterday, with the high-tech wearable item available to anyone over the age of 18 with a spare £1,000.
The Google Glass Explorer programme is designed to allow a wider range of people to test out the proto-type. Google is hoping it will help to better prepare the product for its full consumer launch.
“Technology is at its best when it fits seamlessly into our lives and lets us get on with whatever we’re doing. Our goal for Glass is exactly that – to make it easier to bring people the technology they rely on without drawing them out of the moment,” said Ivy Ross, head of Glass.
It has also been reported Google Glass now has 2GB of RAM, more than the US.
Those wishing to test the technology out – but not necessarily keen on the idea of parting with £1,000 – will also be able to request a demo of it at Google’s Basecamp event in London on June 27 and 28.
Google have not yet said when Google Glass will go on general sale, and Google have insisted that the product is still only at proto-typing stage.
