Explorer programme

The explorer programme is expanding little by little and the UK is the latest country to be offered the technology. Until recently the technology was only available to Americans but now UK buyers can get their hands on Google Glass. The system remains a prototype but Google now want the input from non-American users so they’ve opened it up. All you need to be is over 18 years old and you can buy one for £1,000. If you’re a UK resident with a UK shipping address, why not head to google.co.uk/intl/en/glass/start/how-to-get-one? There’s a short form to complete before you can be accepted on the course. This is also the place to visit if you would like more information on the device.
