The future's so bright, Google Glass now comes with shades

Tech specs go on sale to all in four hot new summer looks ... if Google has stock

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The queue to become a Glasshole just became a lot shorter: Google has put its tech specs on sale to US residents.

The Chocolate Factory has made a rare post to Google+ in which it says “starting today anyone in the US can buy the Glass Explorer Edition."

There's one catch: the sentence quoted above continues with "as long as we have it on hand.” And as long as you have $US1,500 in your hand.

At present, Google's hands seem empty of Glass, as the Glass site still has a “join the queue” notice in place.

The site also, however, shows of four new frames for the tech specs named “Split”, “Thin”, “Bold” and “Curve”.

Four new styles for Google Glass

Clockwise from top right: Split, Thin, Bold and Curve.
Not the Spice Girls or the cast of a Friends remake but names for Google Glass frames.

Google's also revealed details of polarised lenses and earbuds customised to work with Glass, but is keeping quiet about pricing. And just when all this new stuff will go on sale.

What we do know is that if the company maintains its $US1,500 price, teardown analyses suggest Google will be coining it handily. ®
