Google has Sold Out of White or Cotton Color ‘Glass’

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

For the not-so-low price of $1,500, for the first time, Google Glass was made available to the general public. Time Magazine has named it one of the best inventions of 2012, and as part of the one-day-only offering, according to CNN News, anyone in the U.S. could buy the face-mounted computers and get a free pair of glass or sunglass frames on Tuesday. Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format. Wearers communicate with the Internet via natural language voice commands.

The company would not say how many it sold. It did, however, report that it sold out of the white or “cotton” color of Google Glass. The company wrote on its Google+ accounts that, “Things are moving really fast,” according to CBS News. As of Tuesday afternoon there were still red, blue, gray and black color options available to customers. The connected $1,500 eyewear was only available online.

“Wow, what a morning! We’re happy to see so many new faces (and frames) in the Explorer Program,” Google posted to their Google+ page, according to CNN News. Google Glass has the ability to take photos and record 720p HD video. While video is recording, the screen stays on. Many developers and companies have built applications for Glass, including news apps, facial recognition, exercise, photo manipulation, translation, and sharing to social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter.

After a visit to the University of Cambridge by Google’s chairman Eric Schmidt in February 2013, Wolfson College professor John Naughton praised Google Glass and compared it with the achievements of hardware and networking pioneer Douglas Engelbart. Naughton wrote that Engelbart believed that machines “should do what machines do best, thereby freeing up humans to do what they do best.”
