Good news! Now that Google Glass has become something of a punch line or a pariah, and word is out that the markup on the cost of building each unit could be as high as 1,000 percent, the beta program to test out the wearable augmented-reality display is finally open to the public.
The Glass team has very slowly been opening up the Glass beta test over the last year, first through invitations and recently by way of a one-day sale window that was open to the public.
