Google Glass to go on US sale for just one day

Google Glass will be available to consumers for a single day next week for £894, the technology giant has announced.

The search engine developer announced that on April 15, customers in the US will be able to buy it on their website for a 24 hour period.

This will be the first time the general public will have the chance to buy Glass.

Google Glass started as a concept project in 2012, before going into development shortly after as a headset that syncs with your smartphone and enables users to have their messages and other digital interactions appear in their peripheral vision as they go about their day.

Users can also take photos and make video calls using the device.

"We'd planned to post this next week, but it looks like the cat's out of the bag now," said Google in a post, referring to leaked documents which hinted at the sale.
