Google’s making it easier than ever to buy its Google Glass face computer. You can now pick one up from the Google Play Store, the same place you can buy Nexus phones and tablets, Android Wear smartwatches, and apps, music, books, and videos.

Glass accessories including frames and earbuds are also available through the Play Store.

Unfortunately Google hasn’t made Google Glass any more affordable. The company is still selling Glass as an “Explorer Edition” device for early testers, and it still costs $1500.

Google actually opened Glass sales to the public in May, but at the time you had to place an order through the Google Glass shop.

Whether you order from the Play Store or the dedicated Glass shop, you still get a complimentary pair of shades for no additional cost. Normally eyeglass frames or sunglasses sell for up to $225.

Bringing Glass to the Google Play Store suggests that Google is getting one more step closer to launching its wearable computer as something more than a prototype for beta testers and developers.

  1. You better not wear those things around me! As if Google wasn’t watching me enough already… And $1,500 smackers – what’s that about? Maybe they’re trying to get some Apple Sheeple to buy these.

  2. I look forward to grabbing one of these from the cardboard box next to the mood rings at the flea market some day.

  3. Awesome!
    Now anyone with more money than sense can make people around them vaguely uncomfortable and get hassled at movie theaters for stupidly WEARING A CAMERA INTO A MOVIE THEATER.
