Prior to yesterday’s Google Glass launch, the device was available exclusively through a special Explorer program. The tech giant has slowly started opening up the program to more people.

Highlights for this gadget include internet browsing on the go, taking pictures or videos, and GPS-based fitness applications. This is just a scratch on the surface; the potential is even greater.
