Yesterday Google opened the Glass beta to the general public once again, offering the chance for anyone to buy the wearable device for $1,500. Today the company has unveiled three new travel-oriented glassware apps.

The first of these apps is Foursquare, the popular check-in app that allows users to locate and review restaurants, shopping centers, or any other point of interest. Google also debuted TripIt integration, allowing users easily plan their travel itineraries through Glass. The third glassware app revealed today is OpenTable. Using this software, users can now book restaurant reservations right from Glass.

Google is especially hoping travelers will use these apps to plan and document their trips. The company wants Glass users to share photos and videos taken while traveling with the hashtag #TravelThroughGlass. Glass owners can get these new applications from the MyGlass iPhone or Android app. Those looking to purchase Glass itself can do so through Google’s website.
