The under-development glasses, a stealth project hatched in the company’s mysterious Google X lab, are still buggy, Google co-founder Sergey Brin said Wednesday at Google’s I/O developer conference. Google also faces regulatory hurdles that prevent the glasses from being shipped anywhere but the United States.
So for now, only U.S.-based attendees of this week’s I/O developers conference will be eligible to buy the “Google Glass Explorer Edition.” Those who want the glasses can pre-order today and will get the gadget early next year.
