Google Glass wants YOU!
The wearable device had been in the works for quite awhile. Recently, Google has announced its plan to get people to tell them how the eye-wear technology could be used.
Google said on Wednesday that it will select 8,000 applicants to become one of their “Glass Explorers” by answering the question: What would you do if you had Glass?
The 8,000 “Glass Explorers” will be able to order the device for only $1,500.
Applicants can tweet or post on Google+ using the #ifihadglass hashtag in 50 words or less why they should be selected. They can also submit five photos or a 15-second video clip. The deadline for submissions is February 28.
The company wrote on their website what they are looking for in these submissions.
They wrote: “We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass.”
The promo video above features the device being used for different tasks such as sending messages and video-chat calls just by saying the words, “OK, Glass.”
What do you think of this announcement? Do you want to be a Glass Explorer?
