And I say bring it on. Part of an in-depth interview with Wired, where they sat down with two of Glass' project managers, where a bunch of information on the dimensions of the project, as well as specifications were revealed.

When asked about the $1,500 pre-order price of the augmented reality wearable device, the project heads said they were aiming for a reasonable price point that would be accessible to developers. Google does view Project Glass as a premium product, and this should be obvious to most by now.

 

The device will hit a price somewhere below $1,500, but Google will not be aiming for entry-level at all. The project heads also think that the sort of wearable computing that Glass is, will very much be the norm within three-to-five years. Google plan to begin shipping out units to developers in early-2013, and the consumer-ready version of Glass is expected to arrive in 2014.
