Google Glass under starters orders
Google has been in touch with those on the Google Glass waiting list to say that it is “seeing the first few devices come off the production line right now.” Google says it wants to start shipping the devices as soon as possible and won't wait until it has produced enough to fully satisfy demand. Because of this, Glass will ship out in batches to the 2,000 “Glass Explorers” who signed up at last year's Google’s I/O developer conference in San Francisco.
Google Glass is a wearable computer with a head-mounted display (HMD) that is being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project, with the mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer. It displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format, that can interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands.
