Google Glass Ready to Ship for Some Explorers
Google Glass is about to ship — to developers and early adopters, that is.
Google contacted Glass Explorers Monday afternoon to let them know both hardware and software for Google Glass are now ready. The first few devices are now coming off the production line, the company added.
Orders for the Explorer Edition of Google Glass were taken during Google I/O last year. In two and a half days, the company says it saw around 2,000 people sign up for the project.
While there are a few devices ready to ship now, there aren’t 2,000 of them. In its email to Explorers, the company said it will be shipping Glass units in waves, rather than waiting for all 2000 units to be available. Google will contact individual Explorers via email with details when their time comes.
