Several of us have Google Glass and are building and testing apps using the devices. Google posted a message on their Google+ Glass page, announcing that "Next Tuesday, April 15th at 6am PDT, we’re opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US* can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass for $1500 + tax – and it now comes with your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers. The number of spots available is limited, so mark your calendar if you want to get in. You can find us on Tuesday at: http://google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one". The asterisk denoted a comment where Google said "*To everyone outside the US… we know. Sorry We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries."
