Google starts Glass store, only visible to "explorers"

Folks who have the much discussed gadget will be able to buy accessories for it

Just ahead of the arrival of its first redesign, Google Glass has got itself an online shop. Not that you will be able to buy the glasses there, however, merely the accessories that go with it. And to that end, the site is only accessible to early adopters of the headset, that rare sub–species of homo sapiens which has come to be known as Glass Explorers.

Over at The Verge there are some screenshots of the products on offer––currently a troika of earbuds, protective glass and charger sets––and which start at $50. The device will go on sale to the general public some time next year, although it is unclear whether Google will maintain the set's existing $1,500 price tag.
