Did you know that with $1,500 you can own wearable Google Glass? This has been a dream of many since there seemed to be no way of accessing such glasses. For people living in the United States, they can actualize and bring this dream into reality by procuring Google Glass. As a way of taking products closer to consumers, Google has scheduled to open sales in the United States although for one day. If you have been longing to buy, make Tuesday your lucky day and acquire a pair of such glasses.

Just a concern, you may wonder what is the age bracket targeted by Google in its Tuesday sales. Any adult living in US is eligible to buy one of the devices. Normally, there are many strategies laid down by companies when selling their products to first-time customers. For Google, it has identified a sale fashion where it will be throwing frames or sunglasses for free to its first-time customers. Do not ever think that the free releases are in plenty since Google has already hinted on limited supply.

Ahead of the big day in United States, Google has scheduled to commence all sales at exactly 9 am, ET on April 15th. You only need to book a date and be among the customers to be attended by Google on that day. In any case you see possibilities of forgetting; you urged to sign up for updates with the company as a form of setting reminder feeds. Previously, the general public could not get access of Google Glass. This is the very first time for such an offer to take place. Another product which is only available to Google Explorers only is face-mounted computers.

The name “Explorer” is usually to refer to early adopters and this is the only group initially allowed to buy Google Glasses. In due process of acquiring the glasses, one had to undergo a rigorous contest depending on projects to be handled using Google Glass. So far, there have been a lot of criticisms on Google Glass alongside being praised as the future of computing. People wearing such glasses are being restricted from accessing restaurants on a number of reasons. When talking of the design, Google Glass has a small display above the wearer’s right eye. 

Google Glass can be used to access the internet whereby the wearer looks up to see things in all directions, content from customized Glass apps on the computer screen and any notifications. Apart from voice, there is a touch pad on its side which is specifically used to offer control. If you thought that is enough, you are wrong. One of the controversial features in Google Glass is a small camera that is able to record 720p video. There is no light to indicate to the general public whenever the camera is on. However, more education is required in order to get fully acquainted to Google Glass.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
