As you might expect, we were closely guarded by the Glass team from wandering off to any other part of the Googleplex.
So don't get your hopes up about sneaking into the infamous "Google X" facility during your visit.
There is a tiny user guide included in the box for additional questions. But in true Google fashion, some of the answers are serious...and some are tongue-in-cheek.
For example, the Q&A pamphlet acknowledges that not everyone should use Glass (i.e. some people might experience eye strain and/or headaches), but it also answers the obligatoroy question: "Is it OK to go scuba diving with Glass?"
As you might have expected, the answer is, "Uhhh... no."
For reference, the Glass team said that the headset is somewhat water-resistant (there are bound to be tears when sharing some of those priceless memories recorded with Glass, right?), but liquids could also seep in and lead to corrosion.
All in all, it was a fairly seamless process getting set up with Google Glass -- with the exception of the fact that Google bumped my appointment slot back by four days at the last minute.
Check back on ZDNet over the next two days for plenty more about my experience with Glass, including the "non-nerd's guide to Google Glass" -- if such a thing is even possible.
