Google Glass developer says they intentionally left Glass unlocked, adds "FFS, you paid $1500 for it... go to town on it"

Google Glass developer says they left Glass unlocked so developers could play with it

Google Glass can't get here soon enough, but now there's cause for celebration. Google developer Stephen Lau took to his Google+ page to talk about Glass, and how they "intentionally left the device unlocked" so that "you guys could hack it and do crazy fun shit with it". His full quote:

THIS.

Not to bring anybody down... but seriously... we intentionally left the device unlocked so you guys could hack it and do crazy fun shit with it. I mean, FFS, you paid $1500 for it... go to town on it. Show me something cool.

I think it's great that Google are leaving it unlocked, and I truly can't wait to see what developers can do with an unlocked wearable computer. Keep in mind that there is a difference between 'unlocked' and 'rooting', which you can read about on Lau's Google+ page where people are getting quite heated over the topic.
