Google Glass is not a cheap gadget. If you are one of the lucky ones who got an invitation, you know it costs $1500 plus tax. There is no reason to believe Google will keep the price that high forever. At the same time, it is making it easier for potential Explorers to try Glass before purchasing it with its new “home try-on kits.” User clide had the above to share. The kit includes a non functioning Google Glass and all the frames in the Titanium Collection. Google will simply put a $50 hold on your credit card until they receive the kit back within 10 days. Not sure how much this can help someone decide whether Glass is right for them.
