Reminder: Google Glass Available to General Public Today

Today's your chance to become a Glass Explorer

Google today will get its first real test of consumer interest towards its wearable Glass device. To date, there are about 10,000 Glass devices in the wild, the vast majority of which include hand selected journalists, developers, and celebrities. Google decided to make Glass available to the general public today for one day only , and if you're interested in becoming a Explorer, there are still units available at the time of this writing.

There are some caveats. You must be a U.S. resident who is at least 18 years old, and you must use a U.S. shipping address. Assuming you meet these requirements, your reward is that you're eligible to become an Explorer for $1,500 plus tax.

This is the first time Google has opened up the Explorer program (which is a nice way of saying early adopter) to the general public. It's not known how many units have been set aside for the one-day run of sales, though we do know they're available on a first come, first served basis.

Google gives buyers a bit of customization. To begin with, you select from one of five colors, including Charcoal, Tangerine, Cotton, Shale, or Sky. You then choose a complimentary style of frames or shades, of which there are a total of seven. From there, you can either checkout or browse add-on accessories, such as stereo earbuds, clear shades, and a few other items.

If you're game, head here to make your purchase.
