Google is making its latest augmented reality headset available for direct purchase, a year after launching it through select workplace partners for $999 a unit
The price remains the same (or slightly more if you get the Glass “pod” attached to a band), but Google says you no longer have to go through a “solution provider” to purchase one.
That’s especially helpful for developers who may want to tinker with Google’s heads-up display and haven’t been able to easily do so since the device’s initial, ill-fated “Explorer Edition” launch way back in 2014.
Again, this is an enterprise product, so it’s not designed for everyday consumer use. It’s primarily for jobs in construction and on factory floors as well as in the medical field and other disciplines that can make use of a simpler heads-up display and that don’t (yet) require something like a full-blown mixed reality device like Microsoft HoloLens.
