SAN FRANCISCO » A lot more people are about to get a chance to own the Internet-connected eyewear known as Google Glass, the hottest accessory in geek fashion.

Google will sell the "Explorer" version of Glass to any U.S. resident who places an online order for the device beginning at 6 a.m. Hawaii time on April 15. The product will cost $1,500, the same price that Google Inc. has charged for Glass since sales of the device began last year.

This marks the first time that Google has made Glass available to consumers without special access. More than 10,000 models of Glass have been sold to a select group of developers, contest winners and other invitees.

Thursday's announcement about the general sale didn't specify how many more sets of Glass will be available.

What about thieves ripping the glasses right off the person's head. The person wearing this glass in public would be so focused on the webpage that all it takes is to come up from behind the person wearing the glass and whack the person on the head with a sucker punch and when they are knocked down just take the glasses and split. Wearing these glasses in public is the same as putting a sign on a person that says Rob Me.
