Now that the project has reached an advanced prototyping phase Google has started to use 3D printers to custom fit each Glass prototype to the wearer.  It isn’t clear what type of sizing Glass will have when it eventually reaches the market, but with the amount of money Google has, maybe they’ll custom print each order.

According to Google, Glass will begin rolling out to developers for testing in the coming months.
