Google (GOOGL)’s still-in-beta ‘Google Glass’ is now for sale to anyone in the U.S. willing to spend over $1,500 for the Internet-connected Glass eyewear, the company said on a blogpost on Tuesday.
Google, which until now has had a restricted beta test of the device, opened sales of Glass to the U.S. public for one day in April, making it briefly available to more than just a select group of users such as apps developers. On Tuesday, the search giant said it will sell its digital headset more broadly, but only while supplies last.
“We’re still in the Explorer Program while we continue to improve our hardware and software, but starting today anyone in the US can buy the Glass Explorer Edition, as long as we have it on hand,” Google said in its Glass page on Google+. Google did not specify how many units has made already or whether it would make more in response to demand.
The consumer version of the Glass, which can record video, access email, provide driving directions and retrieve information from the Web by connecting wirelessly to a user’s cell phone, is expected to hit the market by the end of the year.
