While many people are probably thinking about buying Google Glass, $1500 is a lot of money to throw down for face gear without ever trying it on. It’s not like people can walk into a shop, test it out, and see how the computer-enabled eyeglasses fit and feel.
So, Google is making it easier for would-be customers to take Glass for a test run. The company apparently sent emails to a number of potential customers saying they have been “selected to participate in a free home try-on pilot,” according to GoogleGlassFans and Reddit user clide. It appears these email recipients previously expressed interest in Google Glass.
For the free try-on, Google will mail users a kit that includes all frame styles and the four available colors of Glass. “Try out all the styles, show your friends and family, and decide which frame and color suits you best,” Google wrote in the email.
