Google sent out thousands of invitations to #ifihadglass winners and today the official Project Glass Google+ page announced the Explorer Program has come to a close. All invitations have been sent and if you didn’t receive one, well, better luck next time. If you want to stay in the loop, you can visit the Glass website and sign up via email.
With the program coming to an end, we’re closer to getting our hands on the real thing. Google has been very careful with who they allow to use Glass, requiring developers at a recent hackathon to sign very restrictive NDAs. However, Google is investing big on this supposedly revolutionary product and has taken an almost Apple approach when it comes to secrecy.
Sergey Brin believes that Google Glass will help free us up from distractions and focus on the interactions that truly matter. For #ifihadglass winners who received an invitation to get their hands on Glass, they’ll have to shell out $1,500 and travel to New York, San Francisco, or Los Angeles to pick up in person.
