Google is ready to handover its Glass to some more people for testing purposes and to do so, the search engine giant is asking current Explorers to suggest 3 people who would like to lay their hands on the gadget. And that’s not all, the guys over at Mountain View have also finished designing a new version of the Glass which will be available for the current Explorers for free before the end of this year.
Let’s first talk about the hardware update. The company has revealed through the gadget’s official Google Plus page that the feedback it received from users has been taken into consideration to update its hardware. The new iteration of the Glass can work in tandem with future lines of shades as well as prescriptions frames and will be accompanied by a mono earbud too.
All the Explorers who purchased the eyegear before October 28, 2013 can swap their device for the new one for free as soon as it is out. This is a one-time opportunity and these users will have 60 days to register after the program commences. They can choose to keep the original Glass and even opt for a different color, if they decide to exchange.
Furthermore, Google is asking current Explorers to suggest 3 people who’d like to buy the wearable gadget and test it. The invites are already being mailed to them and Engadget has a copy of the email that states Explorers can only invite US residents above the age of 18 who are willing to pay for it.
There’s still no news about the commercial availability of the Google Glass, but we know that it will be up for grabs in 2014.
