It looks like Google is about to expand the Glass exploration just a little bit, as the company has begun to send out emails to a select group of early explorers telling them that they have one invite to bestow upon one lucky friend.
“Invite a friend to explore Google Glass,” reads the email.
“Hi there – we love demoing Glass to our friends. We’ve perfected our ‘OK, Glass, take a picture’ faces so that the shot captures us smiling, laughing, and looking chic. Well, maybe not at the same time. Mostly, we love sharing Glass with out friends because adventures through Glass are more fun with others. Here’s you chance to invite one friend into the Glass Explorer Program. Complete this form and share Glass with a friend, funny demo face and all.”
The email specifies that invitees must be U.S. residents over the age of 18 that are able to personally pick up their spectacles in San Francisco, New York, or L.A.
Google has confirmed that a “small subset” of Glass Explorers got this email.
Google Glass first started to surface on the face of some developers, or “Google Glass Explorers,” back in April. Since then, we’ve seen it used on the gridiron, in the operating room, for a POV porn, and on stage. With Google opening up Glass invites to a select few “friends” of explorers, let’s hope that those with the power to bestow invites are wise. We don’t want a bunch of Glassholes walking around, now do we?[Ryan Mott, Google+ via Zagg Blog]
