Google Glass Explorer Edition to Ship Out Within the Next Month

project glass2

Apparently, the first buyers of Google Glass who signed up to throw down $1,500 for the wearable tech at last year’s Google I/O should have their investment in hand within the next month. At an event for the Glass Collective, an “investment syndicate between three firms to provide seed funding to entrepreneurs in the Glass ecosystem to help jumpstart their ideas,” someone close to the matter gave TechCrunch the skinny on shipping. 

The timing seems perfect, with Google I/O right around the corner in May. This allows those who pre-ordered Glass to bring their units (or maybe even pick them up at I/O) for some development help. At least, that’s what I think. Kellex will be in San Francisco, on hand to try and get his hands on with Google’s latest innovations. So far, Google Glass is generating a great amount of buzz around the web, thanks to the #ifihadglass contest they ran last month.

Honestly, Google Glass really excites me.

  • Unless they get that huge battery hump smaller on the back, I don’t see it being popular. At least girls can cover it with their hair…but I don’t see girls being the ones to spearhead the adoption of such a device..

    Can’t wait to get mine from the #ifihadglass contest so I can hike all 48 of the 4,000+ footers in NH, talk about a trek…

    Dont forget those on table after lunch. They will never make it to lost and found box.LOL

  • Seen in the wild in NYC and my honest first impression is like that girl you see down the street, Nice from a far but far from nice… Looked cool till the guy got closer and it just looked weird up close. Could be just me but reminded of the craze that came and went where young kids wearing frames and no lens.

  • Can’t wait to get these on eBay for $10,000 when they start shipping. 🙂

    Live streaming would be awesome (depending what you are looking at).

    I hope power consumption is really low and very efficient. I’d hate to have to take it off midday to recharge it because I’ve been interacting with it too much. I’d also hate to wear it if the extended battery pack was too annoying.

    We’re long overdue for better battery technology.

      So long overdue. The battery would have to be impressive. Especially for those who wear prescription glasses. You can’t just take them off whenever or charge it in the car. The battery will have to last from 6 AM to 11PM at least.

      Im stealing this in hope for a reply. I signed up at I/O for glass but havent been given a chance to buy it? Anyone?

      • Austin Warren

        Google it

    • DigitalDK

      Same here! I plan on hiking with them and taking photos/videos from the top of mountains as well as on the way up which can be pretty taxing on batteries, so hopefully I won’t have to buy a buttload of portable chargers.

  • One great use I can think of is contractors walking around job sites and gathering data for estimators to use

      The use for this is limitless, for jobs, military, and everyday uses. People will be making mvies with this after the first few weeks I bet. Reporters will where them for live news reports, You could Make training videos with them, just limitless potential
