Since news about Google Glass came out, many people have been itching to get a hand on the wearable device. The company already has released about 10,000 units ahead of its official launch, which there's no final word on yet, by the way. The pre-orders of the Glass units were placed during the Google I/O 2012 developers' event two years ago.

However, word came out quickly, even before Google's official announcement, that people have the chance to join the Explorer Program again.

"Whoops. So... we'd planned to post this next week, but it looks like the cat's out of the bag now. Over the past several months, we've been trying out different ways to expand the Explorer program," Google wrote in its post.

It admitted having planned out different ways on how to expand the program because they get requests every day from those who haven't touched the unit. Which is why it decided to try something new, to get feedback from those people,  too.

The extended Explorer Program allows any resident in the U.S. who is more than 18 years old and whose shipping address is in the U.S. to purchase the device at $1,500 - but only for a limited offer. The Explorer Program makes way for another round of selling on April 15 only. Google Glass will come with a free sunglass shade or a choice of its new prescription glass frames.

"To discover new places, sometimes we need to leave the map behind. And that's what Glass Explorers do. They are the first to make, to tinker, to create, to shape, and to share through Glass. We're expanding little by little, and experimenting with different ways of bringing new Explorers into the program," the company also wrote at its website.

Interested consumers may sign up on the Google Glass website for the purchase. Otherwise, they can go back at 9 a.m. EDT on April 15. The company hasn't disclosed yet as to how many Glass units will be sold on that day, but supplies are limited.

However, is Glass for everyone? It appears not everyone is enthusiastic about the wearable device.

Based on previous reports, the Glass has been receiving a bad rap since it went out. Remember the woman forced to leave a bar because the people there wanted some privacy? Or that woman who got ticketed while driving with the Glass but later on got it dismissed? Other states also pushed to ban distracting devices, and that includes Glass.
