If an existing Google Glass Explorer has sent one of their three invitations to you, the good news is you no longer have to travel to Google’s offices in NY or LA to collect your gadget in person.

For the first round of Explorers, Google had insisted on personal collection so that a member of staff could talk them through the product and assist them with setup. Those accepting invitations now are being offered a 45-minute one-to-one on Google Hangouts … 


We imagine that Google won’t want to be doing this for everyone once the device goes on public sale, so it suggests the company thinks it still has some work to do on making Glass friendly enough to simply ship to consumers with a printed setup guide.

Google recently revealed a new design for Glass, advising that existing Explorers would be able to upgrade.
