    Google Glass Looking promising

    Google Glass How It Feels
    What it does

    Looks like Glass is in beta testing phase, and trying to recruit evangelists. They will choose 8000 people. Anybody here going to go for it?

    Using Google+ or Twitter, tell us what you would do if you had Glass, starting with the hashtag #ifihadglass.

    Your application must be 50 words or less
    You must include #ifihadglass in your application
    You can include up to 5 photos with your application
    You can include a short video (15 secs max)
    Be sure to follow us on Google+ (+ProjectGlass) or Twitter (@projectglass) so that we can contact you directly
    You must be at least 18 years old and live in the U.S. to apply
    For more details, please see our full Terms and FAQ

    What happens next?

    The deadline for applications is February 27th. If you are chosen, we will reach out to you with an invitation to become a Glass Explorer (please remember to follow us so that we can contact you directly). Explorers will each need to pre-order a Glass Explorer Edition for $1500 plus tax and attend a special pick-up experience, in person, in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles.

    I may be the minority in this but I wouldn't wear those things for all the money in the world and I hope I never see a person looking at me with that on their face.

    Umm, no, I still have to pay 1500 bucks, and get my butt to New York or LA??? This seems like something an unemployed actor with rich parents might be better at.

    I was going to get a pair, being artistic and all, but then I remembered that Google was a tax-weasel.

    that stuff worries me, already with the GPS built in to phones and wireless data already enables them to track us where we go and what we do, with google glass, they'll have the ability to literally watch what we do.

    no thanks.

    call me paranoid.

    I'm gonna wait till they come out with contact lens so I don't need to look like a dork.

    I've been looking out for this for quite a while now. I'd be in when the technology gets a little better, a little smaller and becomes more affordable.

    Yup.

    Wow. I guess I missed the point again. Dave Martell pays relatively more taxes on his income than Google, but all that really matters to folks on this forum is aesthetics. Make an apparently desirable product and it doesn't matter that you're a thief . . .
    Google that.

    This reminds me of the eyeglass prop from "The Jerk" that eventually made everyone who used one go cross eyed.
