This article is more than 7 years old.

Google is making its wearable computing device, Glass, available today. For one day only, people can buy Glass for $1,500 plus tax. Buyers can choose from plain lenses, prescription lenses or sunglasses.

Until now, only people handpicked by Google had access to the device, through Google's Glass Explorer program.

The device allows people to constantly monitor e-mail and calls, surf the web and take photos and videos, which has raised privacy concerns.

Scott Stein, a senior editor for CNET, has been using Google Glass since it first came out last year, and tells Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson whether Glass is worth all the hype.
