Google had been coy about a release date for the product, though. On Wednesday, Brin, speaking at Google's IO developers conference in San Francisco, reintroduced Google Glass as it's now known with a showing skydivers using the technology.

Regarding availability, he also announced that pairs of Explorer Edition Google Glass will be available next year to developers for $1,500 each.
