Google Glass Explorers receive invitation to swap to new version of the specs
Google Glass Explorers are getting an opportunity from Google to swap their OG version of the connected specs for a pair of the next-gen model. The new model supports prescription lens and also will work with a mono earbud being offered as an accessory. Google isn't forcing owners to swap, but they must inform Google of their decision by February 5th if they do plan on moving on up to version 2 of Google Glass.

Current Explorers are getting the chance to update to the next version of Google Glass for free

To swap, you need to fill out the form sent with Google's invitation. You can also decide on a new color if you're unhappy with the shade of your current pair of Glass. Colors are shipped based on first-come first-served, so even if you request something specific you might not get it.

Once Google is ready to send you your updated Google Glass, you will be sent a self-addressed box to ship back your current device and 3 to 5 days after Google receives the box, it will ship out the new pair. Turnaround time, according to Mountain View, is about a week. And while you might suffer from Glass withdrawal for those seven days, you will soon be receiving the latest, updated version of Google Glass.

If you have it attached to prescription lenses will you be forced to take it off in the places that don't allow them?
