Google has updating Google Glass before the release of the device to its Explorer program later this year, and now an official accessory store has quietly come online, Marketing Land reports.

There is now a section labeled ‘Accessories’ under the Google Glass help site, listing items including chargers, earbuds, shades and shields, swapping frames and pouches — and then linking users to the accessory store.

The store can also reportedly be accessed via the “My Glass” control panel which all Explorers see in order to manage the device and its apps. Currently there are only four items stocked in the store.
