Google Finally Lets You Get Your Hands on Glass -- For One Day

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Google  (GOOG) is finally making its wearable device, Glass, available to the public during a one-day sale on April 15.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

For one day only, you don't have to be an Explorer to get your own pair of Google Glass.

Google announced it will hold a one-day sale of its wearable device for the public on April 15.  The Internet-connected eyewear will be available to U.S. residents through online order beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern time.  Glass will still have its price tag of $1,500.  April 15 will mark the first time Google makes Glass available to anyone outside of the 10,000 developers, contest winners and those selected to try out the device, called Explorers.

Glass allows users to check email, read messages, get directions and perform a variety of functions by viewing the thumbnail-sized screen attached above the right eye.  Glass can also take hands-free photos and video through voice-activated commands.

After the one-day sale, Glass won't remain available to the public.  Google has said it plans to eventually put Glass on the mass market with a retail price of less than its current $1,500, but no word yet on when that will be.

In New York, I'm Brittany Umar for TheStreet.
