Would you like to try out Google Glass before spending $1500? Unless you know somebody with a pair, you’re out of luck. But a user on Reddit has posted images of the next best thing: a program where you can try on Google’s Glass-compatible frames and see whether they look good on your delicate face. Google has confirmed the trial program through its Google Plus page.
In exchange for a $50 deposit, Reddit user clide received four pairs of Glass in the mail, each with a different titanium frame and different color Glass unit. All four pairs of Glass were nonfunctional. One photo shows a broken USB port, presumably so it could not be charged or plugged into a computer.Google Sending Out "Try-Before-You-Buy" Google Glass [gigaom.com]
