A woman in Southern California was wearing her Google Glasses when she was pulled over on the highway and given a ticket. George Kiriyama reports.


According to the Google Glass Explorer Program site, Google is expanding the program gradually and is trying new ways of bringing people into the program.

The company first started selling the connected glasses to select consumers earlier this year. However, the buyers had apply for the opportunity to purchase the device by explaining why they wanted to be part of the program.

Google has not given an exact date of when the device will become available to the mass market, but it's speculated to be sometime next year.
