  • In this March 6, 2014, "Google Glass Explorer" Chara Kelley poses for a photo with her Google Glasses in Gadsden, Ala. Kelley used Twitter to enter a contest from Google and was one of 8,000 people selected to become a Glass Explorer.

A lot more people are about to get a chance to own the Internet-connected eyewear known as Google Glass, the hottest accessory in geek fashion.

Google will sell the "Explorer" version of Glass to any U.S. resident who places an online order for the device beginning at 9 a.m. PDT April 15. The product will cost $1,500, the same price that Google Inc. has charged for Glass since sales of the device began last year.

This marks the first time that Google has made Glass available to consumers without special access. More than 10,000 models of Glass have been sold to a select group of developers, contest winners and other invitees.

Thursday's announcement about the general sale didn't specify how many more sets of Glass will be available.
