"It's been a bit more than a year since we announced Project Glass to the world," according to the Project Glass page on Google+. "Since then, we've been working hard on our Explorer Editions and we're seeing the first ones come off the production line. Yesterday was the first day that Explorers got to take Glass out into the real world. We've been waiting for this day for a long time, and it's been both thrilling and surreal to watch it happen."
The first Explorers to receive Glass are the developers who signed up for them at the 2012 Google I/O conference in San Francisco.
For the Explorers from the #Ifihadglass campaign, Google says they will be contacted in the near future. "If you are one of our Explorers: this process will take some time, so hang in there and thanks in advance for your patience," the company wrote.
