Google Glass will ship to developers "within the next month" and forms the "Glass Collective"
The news came at Google's event that was held today where it was announced that Google Ventures and two of the biggest technology venture capital firms in the world, Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins, were partnering to form the "Glass Collective". The Glass Collective will be an "investment syndicate" between the three organizations to provide funding to hardware and software developers working on Google Glass projects.
While developers who pre-ordered last year should be getting Glass soon, those who entered the #IfIHadGlass competition will have to wait. And, of course, no one is getting Glass for free. Both devs and contest winners will have to pay $1500 for Glass, and travel to either New York City, San Francisco, or Los Angeles to pick up their devices.
