Google Glass Release Date: When Can We Expect It?

The Google I/O is going to be largely a release of modest updates to Googles current OS, this means a 4.3 Jelly Bean Android update and not the Key Lime Pie update that many of us were hoping for. Still, there will be some things for developers and tech bloggers to talk about. Obviously, the elephant in the room is Glass. People want to see how it's developed since it's first iterations and what changes, if any, have been made.

The sold-out audience in attendance of Wednesday's Keynote address are likely to be part of Google's Explorer program. The program was developed as a way to get Glass in the hands of tech bloggers, developers and entrepreneurs, for a price of course. Hopefully, we will be able to see some more of what Glass can do. I'm talking about more than just skydiving videos or pictures of white dudes wearing them in the shower. Google Glass was initially released at last years I/O conference, so we can anticipate a lot of self-congratulatory back-patting at this one. Still, I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't excited to see what else Google Glass can do. Who knows, maybe they will actually give us a release date. So far there has been no word on when Glass will be released aside from vague references to being ready for public consumption sometime in 2014.
