Cupertino, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Move over, Google Glass. Here comes iGlass, and it’s cheap and disposable!

Apple announced today that as part of its venture into wearable technology, it is releasing a Beta version of what it hopes would be its answer to the $1,500 Google Glass.

The iGlass will be released together with the Apple watch in early 2015.

Apple’s iGlass will do just about everything that the Google Glass is capable of, except that it is cheap — at $39.99 — and disposable. And did we mention recyclable?

The iGlass is made of collapsible cardboard that attaches with a ribbon (included) to a baseball cap (not included). Giants fans, this is for you!

When not in use, iGlass can be collapsed and neatly stored in your drawer or your car’s glove compartment. However, iGlass must be partnered with either an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus (sorry Android fans, you just have to stick to the more expensive Google Glass).  The iPhone is then attached, snuggly, to the cardboard casing and all you need to do is download the iGlass app from the Apple Store to make it work.

Pre-orders are now being accepted, just in time for the gift-giving holidays. So, delay your gift-giving for now and send your loved ones a raincheck for the iGlass coming in January to an Apple Store near you.
