Google is making its futuristic, Internet-connected glasses available for some computer programmers to try out.
The company is selling it for $1,500 to people attending its annual conference in San Francisco for software developers. It will ship early next year and won't be available for sale outside the conference.
Google demonstrated the device, known as Project Glass, by having parachutists jump out of a plane above San Francisco. The audience got live video feeds from their glasses as they descended to land on the roof of the Moscone Center, the location of the conference.
Google had given a glimpse of the technology in a video posted earlier this year.
