NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Tuesday's one-day sale of Google Glass, Google's (GOOG) much-anticipated wearable tech device, was apparently popular enough to close the company's Explorer Program -- for now.
Google announced on its Google Glass Web site that it is currently "out of spots" for said-explorers but "may have more to share soon." Google is recommending that consumers (U.S. residents only) sign up for its Explorer program to be informed if a spot opens up, however the company could not guarantee that everyone who signs up would get in.
"Welcome to our new Explorers! All spots in the Explorer Program have been claimed for now, but if you missed it this time, don't worry. We'll be trying new ways to expand the Explorer program in the future. You can sign up below to stay updated. That's all for now, folks," Google said Wednesday on its Google Glass G+ page.
A Google spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday that Google may consider continuing sales of Google Glass. "The sale may go longer than a day; we just have to see how well everything works and how well we handle the demand," the spokesperson wrote in an emailed statement to TheStreet.
Google offered Google Glass to the masses in the U.S. for one day only on Tuesday. Consumers had to chalk up $1,500 plus taxes to buy Google Glass. Google said on its Google Glass G+ page Tuesday afternoon that it had sold out of the device in Cotton (white).
