Who needs invitations? You can now buy Google Glass without one

Now you don’t have to be special to buy a Google Glass for yourself. You just need to have $1,500.

Google is evolving into “a more open beta” for Glass, continuing the Explorer Program for early adopters, according to a post today on the Google+ page for Google Glass.

Glass Explorers in the U.S. can now buy Google Glass in charcoal, tangerine, cotton, shale, and sky. And you can even ask for titanium frames or shades, free of charge. The move follows a one-day sale last month.

A “wider release” of Glass is coming, according to today’s Google+ post.

Google has tried to find more ways to show the value of Google Glass, with the Glass at Work program.

The New York Police Department and the U.S. Air Force have tested Glass, and some doctors have already found uses for Glass. Enough of these business-oriented case studies could show the widespread market viability of the wearable device.

I do not see why anyone would even want to buy them. They look stupid, way over prices for how much they cost to make...I understand wanting to make a profit...but 1400.00 over the making price...LMAO the maker(s) of these glasses has got life jacked up. Only people with no life and tons of money would buy these.

What's funny is that all of this "temptation" around google glass and lack of availability, and limited availability has killed the buzz for the product (no pun intended?) I think we can wave off any outlandish sales projections...and that's totally pun intended.
