SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Google's Internet-linked eyewear - hotly anticipated by some, feared by others - is now available to anyone in the United States with US$1,500 (S$1,875) to spare and a yen to become an "explorer."

The decision to open the "Glass" test, or beta, program on Wednesday to anyone with enough money and curiosity came about a month after a one-day sale of the eyewear to the public.

"We learned a lot when we opened our site a few weeks ago, so we've decided to move to a more open beta," said a post on the Glass page at Google+ online social network.

"We're still in the Explorer Program while we continue to improve our hardware and software, but starting today anyone in the US can buy the Glass Explorer Edition, as long as we have it on hand."
