Now that Google has officially launched its Glass 'Explorer' programme in the UK, it should be fairly simple to get yourself on the list (finally).

Yes, it's been a long wait, but the big G is ready to take your cash for a wearable camera-screen-phone hybrid...

Here's how to go about it:

  • First up, you'll need to gather £1,000 in pennies. Also make sure you have an Android phone running at least Android 4.0.3
  • If you're not sure whether to take the leap and hand it over, you can sign up to a Basecamp demo at Google Campus this Friday and Saturday.
  • Then you'll need to head to Google's UK Explorer website which you can find here.
  • Enter the sign up process via the big button, and hand over your credit card details and other information. You'll need a Google Wallet too.
  • You might also want to consider getting a different frame or lens for your Glass -- see all the styles at this website.
  • The glass comes with a USB charger, but you might also want to think about finding a case for it.

Here are the tech specs for the device:

  • Photos - 5 MP
  • Videos - 720p
  • Bone conduction audio
  • WiFi/Bluetooth
  • 12GB memory
  • One-day battery
  • Adjustable nosepads and durable frame fits any face.
  • Extra nosepads in two sizes.
