Google Will Now Educate Glass Explorers Over Hangouts, No Barge Necessary

Google is expanding its Glass Explorer program once again, allowing current participants to invite three of their closest friends to drop $1,500 on highly experimental hardware. Hard to believe that at one point, Holiday 2013 was cited as a possible consumer ship date for Glass – the wearable tech isn’t ready for that, but Google does feel at least that it can instruct people in the gadget’s use remotely instead of in person, according to Android Central.
