While some politicians are trying to curb the use of Google Glass, there are plenty of others who are eager to use the new technology, a wearable computer that displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format.
To be the first to get Google Glass people had to fork over $1,500 to enter a special contest. And now Google has announced the six “lucky” people who will pay Google that steep price in exchange for Glass. And @projectglass is in the process of announcing the rest of the lucky winners by replying individually to each of their past #ifihadglass tweets, reports Gizmodo. In all there will be 8,000 winners.
The Tweets say: “You’re invited to join our #glassexplorers program. Woohoo! Make sure to follow us – we’ll DM in the coming week.” Some people are also getting the word that they were actually disqualified from consideration because they broke a rule to qualify, a separate Gizmodo story reports. But some people will be walking around with these funky glasses in the coming weeks.
Are you interested in buying the Google Glass?
