Google has invited another round of developers to purchase Google Glass, which is not yet on the market.

According to Endgadget, some developers who previously expressed interest in the high-tech eyewear are now receiving invitations to become a part of the company's Explorer programme. A page has been set up for registration.

The move comes on the heels of Google rolling out a preview of its SDK and opening up Mirror API to developers, giving anyone who wants to create apps for the high-tech specs the opportunity to do so.

"When you asked us how to get Glass on this site, we told you there would be more chances to join the Explorer Program... someday. Well, today's the day," the email read.

"The sneak peek of the Glass Developer Kit (GDK) is available now, making it possible to build new and innovative kinds of Glassware. We're now inviting you, as a developer, to purchase Glass, become an Explorer and join us in taking the next step in developing for Glass."

The cost to "begin your adventures with Glass" is $US1500 (NZ$1800).

Google has not confirmed when Glass will hit the consumer market, but inviting more developers to the programme indicates that it is ready to move forward with ramping up its app offerings.
