Google's first step toward a traditional retail experience for Google Glass has come to SF—in addition to NYC and LA—in the form of its Basecamp. It's a physical location where customers can demo the face computer before deciding whether or not to purchase. The interactive store also offers fitting services and support sessions to ensure optimal use of the $1,500 wearable gadget. Visits are by appointment only—and our recent search shows that there's only one available slot for the remainder of July and it's this Thursday at 4pm. Up to one additional guest is allowed but everyone must be over the age of 13. And even if you aren't in the market to take one home, this is your chance to "Ok, Glass" with no strings attached.
