No need to worry about that you don't have US$1,500 to be a Google Glass early adopter. Someone in China has 3D-printed out his own Google glass and share the design for free.
A Chinese site said this 3D-printed Google Glass is also functional. It runs Android 4.0.4, and has 16GB of storage and a 5-megapixel camera that is able to take photos and record 720p videos. Same as Google Glass, this 3D printed specs supports WiFi and Bluetooth connection. - Sounds fantastic, well, just kidding ;-) It is not functional.
But if you have a 3D printer nearby, you can download here its design, a Google Glass.skp file that Gao shared with the public for free. The webpage is in Chinese, but try to find an icon like this and click.

Nice work, but wouldn't innovation be superior to emulation? For example a 3D display version that had stereo vision as a HUD would have been a great evolutionary improvement on the current Google Glass concept.
