Google launches free Glass Home Try-On Program for potential Explorers

Want to get your hands on Google Glass and see what you look like without having to spend $1500 for a pair? Google is making it much easier for people to see what Glass looks like on them with the launch of a new home try-on program. This program is centered around helping potential Explorers find what color and frame style they want before they fork over money.

This program allows potential Explorers to receive a package with Glass itself in four colors along with all the different styles of the Titanium Collection prescription frames. All of this is free of charge, although they place a $50 hold on your credit card until they receive the home try-on kit back.

Glass Explorer +Serge Berig posted a screenshot this morning displaying an email sent from Google to “Potential Explorers” with information about this program.


I called the number in the invitation and got to speak to a Glass Guide about this program. He clarified questions I had regarding this new program launch. Here is what you need to know.

What You Get
  • Non-functioning Google Glass devices in Charcoal, Tangerine, Shale, and Sky
  • All of the frames in the Titanium Collection in different colors
What You Need To Know

When ordering the Home Try-On Kit, Google will place a $50 hold on your credit card until they receive the kit back within 10 days. Google provides prepaid shipping labels, so you don’t have to worry about paying to ship them back.
