The wearable computers, which are expected to go on sale in 2014, are currently being tested on a group of 1,000 people.

The website also says: "Glass isn't for everyone. Like when wearing glasses, some people may feel eyestrain or get a headache."

"Kids might break Glass or hurt themselves, and Google's terms of service don't permit those under 13 to register a Google account," it reads.
