Update: Now Live / Update 2: Ends tonight, going quick

Google will be offering Glass tomorrow for one day only as a way to expand the Explorer program that was first announced back in 2013. The device will be available directly through Google for the standard Explorer price of $1,500 — definitely on the expensive side. Included with that price will be a free pair of shades or frames, so those who purchase tomorrow will get a slightly better deal than all Explorers up to this point.

Most people, however, should hold off tomorrow. In addition to the insane price tag ($1,500 for Galaxy Nexus specs is crazy, Google), a consumer release of Glass is still expected to take place this year. That means improved hardware and a far cheaper price should be on the horizon.

That release should come this fall, with Glass news hopefully being a major point at the upcoming Google I/O developer conference.

To buy Glass tomorrow, all you need is a Google account, 18 or older, and a resident of the United States. Simply head to Google’s Glass website tomorrow with your credit card in hand.

If the possibility of your $1,500 investment being obsolete within a few months doesn’t phase you, be sure to tell us why you’re buying Glass tomorrow!
