Friends Are Getting Invites To Buy Google Glass

Google Glass App IconEarlier this week, we shared that Google Glass Explorers were now able to invite three friends to also join the Explorer program. They had 14 days to submit the list of three names to Google and then Google would begin inviting those friends to the program.

I am a bit surprised that those invites were already starting to be submitted to the friends, as of last night.

Some are reporting that they have received an email from the Google Glass team allowing them to purchase Google Glass. Here is a post in Google+ from Lucas Freeman saying he got his invite last night around 6pm.

Here is what the email invite looks like:

Google Glass Invites

I suspect most did not receive the email from Google yet, but I expect those emails to start rolling out heavily over the next week or two.

Glass are a nice idea but $1,500 price tag ensures they aren't going to catch on ;) I assume the release price will be much lower, hope so anyway.

I got my invite last night from glass and ordered mine. A friend also got her invite last evening, she order hers last night and received them this morning via UPS. That is a super fast turn around. Ordered on Thursday evening and delivered Friday morning. I have not received my shipping notification, but I am checking my email.

I still see strong parallels with Segway, price being just one.

That's a lot of money to be a tester... Do you get the real glass for free when it comes out and throw this bulky/ugly thing away or do you have to pony up another 1.5k to get the real deal?

Hi Katie, I'd love to chat. We're developing an app that is trying to make exercise fun to get the whole world moving. Think what Wii Sports did for the Wii... ! It be great to find out your experience with Glass so far. All the best, Richard Email: Richard(at)glassfitgames(dot)com

Why do people have to purchase Google only by invitation? Is it not open to the general public?

Invited 3 friends. 2 have received one has not-is this unusual? It's been 23 days?
