Regular people will be able to purchase Google Glass by the end of 2013 for less than $1,500, sources have confirmed to CNET. Google originally targeted a 2014 consumer release when it revealed Project Glass last year, but the timeframe has seemingly sped up in recent months with developer hack-a-thons in San Francisco and New York and this week’s announcement that people looking to put Glass to creative use could go through an application process to be able to pre-order the augmented reality specs for $1,500. Google also launched a new site promoting Glass that featured the below video of the new wearable tech in action. The advancement of Google Glass also seems to coincide with recent rumors that the company is planning to open retail stores, presumably where consumers could get more familiar with products like Glass, and comfortable with the idea of wearing the funky rims on their face.
