(CNN) - You may have been hoping to scoop up a pair of virtual reality with Google's new hi-tech glasses.
They've finally unveiled their computerized glasses to the public, but most of us won't be able to buy a pair.
At least not yet.
Known as Project Glass, the device allows you to text message, take pictures, and map your location, and those are just a few of the options.
But don't get too excited.
The only people who can buy the device right now are developers who attended a Google conference on Wednesday.
It costs a whopping $1,500 a pair and won't be ready for shipping until the beginning of next year.
Part of the reason for the slow rollout is the company is looking for more developer input, and Google admits there are still a few bugs to sort out.
But the glasses have come a long way in the past three years.
Project Glass started out as a pair of ski goggles connected to a bunch of wires and computers.
Now each pair weighs less than most sunglasses.
One thing is for sure, there's going to be quite a bit of wild bidding on eBay for second hand sales once the developers give it the green light.
