Having spent the best part of a year developing its head-mounted technology in the United States, Google has just rolled out the Explorer Edition of Glass to interested parties in the United Kingdom. At a price of £1000, it works out at roughly the same cost as the U.S. version, and although Google alluded to a wider roll-out across more countries in its announcement post on G+, the UK is the currently the only group of countries officially outlined as beneficiaries of Glass.

A new, “chic” range of Google Glass lenses has just become available to purchase, and while you’ll be paying a significant mark-up on the $1,499 asking price of the standard Explorer Edition models, you are, at least, less likely to be branded a “Glasshole.”

Google Glass is currently being trialed in a multitude of different fields. From Virgin Airline check-ins at Heathrow Airport to the Dubai Police and New York Police in the ongoing fight against crime, the empowering nature of having a head mounted camera and ready-made apps is really starting to show, and now, surgeons appear to be getting in on the act as well.

Google Glass has become a source of interest in the recent weeks, with the company first opening up the expensive and highly advanced eyewear for sale for just a day, and then making it available for everyone in the US. It seems clear that Google is out to ensuring some rather heavy marketing for the Google Glass lineup, and their latest stint with tennis sensation Roger Federer and Stefan Edberg is sure to help that cause. Apparently, the two tennis giants stopped by the Google campus to try on the new eyewear, and take on each other in a friendly match that offered a unique perspective into the game.

Police in Dubai have been testing out Google’s Glass in an attempt to bust those violating traffic laws and regulations. Following a pilot scheme by the New York Police Department in the United States, it’s no surprise to see more law enforcement agencies utilizing the technologies offered by Google’s head-mounted gadget, and apparently, Dubai’s police force has already created two custom app tailored to stopping traffic violators in their tracks.

Google Glass has been out in the wild for well over a year now, and although it remains in beta, the search giant recently ditched its invitation policy to allow any wannabe Explorer with a spare $1,500 to join up. The more widespread a product becomes, the likelier it is that its various strengths and flaws will become more obvious and exposed, and apparently, long-term use of the unusually-positioned display can lead to muscle fatigue and general eye pain.

Even with Google Glass suffering something of a PR crisis over the last few months, there’s little doubt that the technology is still some of the coolest around. While we have to admit to not being sure where the idea of wearable technology will take us in the coming years, Google should be given credit for being at the forefront of what is possible today.

Google Glass, which first hit the dev scene in beta last year, was initially only offered to developers and “creative individuals.” This policy has, at numerous stages, been gradually relaxed, to the point where recently, those who wanted to join the Explorer program badly enough (and were willing to stump up the cash for a unit), could sign up without too much trouble. Now, though, Google has opened Project Glass to everybody in an open beta of the current Explorer Edition, once again, so if you want to see what the fuss is about and are willing to pony up the cash, check the details below.

The Google Glass might be a niche product, both from the usability and price point perspectives, but it seems that this particular niche cannot be satiated by just one competitor. Or, at least, that’s what Epson seems to believe. The company that gained famed via its remarkable printing products has announced the second-generation of its Google Glass competitor – a smart glass christened Moverio BT-200, which can do pretty much everything that Google has on offer and more, for a significantly lower price point.

There has been an ongoing debate since the announcement of Google Glass as to whether the head-mounted gizmo will appeal to the everyday consumer, and one of the major factors that has stopped many folks from testing out so far has been the pricing. At $1,500, the Explorer Edition of Glass doesn’t come cheap, but according to a new estimates, the hardware that comprises the face computer costs a total of just $80.

The team behind Project Glass has been steadfast in offering constant updates to the software of the beta’d face computer, and via the official Google+ page, has announced a series of updates headed the way of Glass Explorers this week.

Since its inception and initial enthusiasm, Google Glass has suffered something of a damaged reputation amongst those who don’t own it. Becoming, for some, an example of all that is wrong with modern technology and even being used as a symbol of gentrification in San Francisco and surrounding areas that is being placed squarely at Google’s feet, Google Glass is currently in the midst of a P.R. crisis.
