You Have A Week To Apply For Your Own Google Glass [#ifihadglass]By: Chris Crum - February 20, 2013
Earlier, we shared the new Google Glass video, which shows a bunch of interesting use cases for the device. This video was part of a new site Google has up about Glass, which also includes an application you can fill out to get one.
Don’t get too excited though. You have to convince Google you’re worthy of getting it.
“We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass,” the company says. “We’d love to make everyone an Explorer, but we’re starting off a bit smaller. We’re still in the early stages, and while we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting.”
Google requires that applicants use Google+ or Twitter to tell it what they would do if they had Glass. You have to include the hashtag #ifihadglass (which is currently trending on Twitter). The application must be 50 words or less, and can include up to five photos. It can also include a short video (15 seconds max).
You have until February 27th to submit an application. If Google selects you, the company will let you know with an invitation to become a “Google Glass Explorer”. Explorers must pre-order Glass Explorer Edition for $1,500 plus tax, and attend a special pick-up experience in person. These will take place in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles.
You also have to follow +ProjectGlass on Google+ or @projectglass on Twitter, so they can contact you directly.
