Google Glass to cost under $1500 when it launches this year According to CNET, Google's new Google Glass eyewear will be available by the end of the year and cost under $1500 per pair.
The original target had been 2014.

Google also recently announced developer hackathons in both New York and San Francisco for people looking to use Glass in creative ways.

The search giant recently showed a full promotional video of Glass in use. Very early reviews claim the voice control UI still needs work, and Glass is only really functional in areas with fast data connections. The glasses Bluetooth to Android and iOS devices and can use Wi-Fi and 3G/4G from the connected phone, without having its own cellular radio.
