Google Glass accessory shop now open – high prices and not much choice
Google’s smart specs aren’t out for the general public yet as version 2 has only just been announced, but that hasn’t stopped an accessory store from popping up for Glass Explorers to investigate.
Not only that, they can check out the list of accessories for the high tech facewear. Although, there is only three things currently listed in the store, and they’re not cheap.
The award for both priciest and pointless item goes to the US$75 Clear Shield which will convert Glass into something resembling lab goggles. Well, who wouldn’t want to rock that mad professor vibe when already wearing gadgety googles?
There are also some mono earbuds which plug into Glass’ microUSB port for higher quality audio than the built-in bone conducting speakers found on Glass v1.0, and they’ll set Glass Explorers back US$50 – the same cost as an extra cable and charger bundle.
There’s still no word on when the redesigned Glass units will be available for regular consumers. Rumour is that it will happen next year.
