    Keep scrolling down. It requires $1500 even after you get accepted. So even if you get chosen you still have to pay

      Ewww … good point. Sucks. Guess I’m out.

    I know they’re still in the early stages of development, but I really hope that $1500 is not reflective of the final price tag when it finally hits shelves. I’m fine with waiting, but the cost has got to come down or this is one techy-bandwagon that I won’t be jumping aboard.

      Laura, I think the cost has more to do with pre-production costs and not final product cost. The feel of the Google Glass program is to beta-test in the real world with real people. I wouldn’t be surprised if Google decided to back away from that specific cost and offered the beta-glasses at a significantly lower rate.

      What it does do is limit the number of truly interested people, thereby reducing likelihood someone will get a pair just to resell or take apart. While its out of my price range, I’d still seriously consider buying if chosen.
