If you paid Google the $1,500 last year at the Google I/O 2012 event for the Google Glass Explorer Edition, or if you are one of the winners of the #ifIhadglass contest conducted by the search engine giant, then you have some good news today. Anonymous sources close to the company and the project have tipped off Tech Crunch that units of the Google Glass Explorer Edition are almost ready to be shipped out to their rightful owners, and that the respective owners should receive their Google Glass units within the next month.
And this timing could not have been better for Google. This is because the Mountain View based tech giant has its Google I/O 2013 event next month in San Francisco, from the 15th of May to the 17th of May. And as you might expect, the Google Glass is going to be one of the most important topics of talk at the event.
Google will be happy to see the units getting shipped away to the developers, because the developer base for a product like this one is very important. But there is one more problem here, or concern. One might have an excellent idea for an application of the Google Glass, but might not have enough capital to start off with the project. To get you covered in such situations, Google has a new announcement, the Google Glass Collective. Android Authority writes:
Today, Google Ventures launched the “Glass Collective” in collaboration with Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. The Glass Collective is an investment group set out to provide seed capital to Glass entrepreneurs, to help them get started on their projects.
So, you are getting the Google Glass and you have a very good chance for getting investors. What are you waiting for? You can get started off with your new project right away.
