Chances are that almost everyone that browses the Internet on a daily basis has heard of Google Glass. Most would try it but there’s two things making them potentially unable to get their hands on a pair. These two things are the release date and price. The developer version will be priced at $1,500 and will be available in February 2013. The consumer version price, coming out in 2014, has not been announced yet, but it will definitely be under the $1,500 price tag. So, there is some waiting for most people. However, if you have the proper tools such as a 3D printer, the closest you will get to a pair is by 3D printing your own version.
I know that some of you reading this are thinking that that you could 3D print a functional Google Glass pair with features such as Internet, video recording and all the fancy functionalities. I will disappoint you by saying that the 3D printed Google Glass is just a visual replica in its alpha stages and it does nothing functional, yet. The man behind this 3D print is Sunny Gao, a competitor in the Shanghai hackathon. According to Mashable, necessary parts to offer the same or similar features as Google Glass are in the works, such as the processor and cameras.
The file is available for everyone to download as a SketchUp file.
