Google Glass Price: For $1,500 Google Will Give You a Shot at 'Glass'
Google is all the rage with Wednesday's Google Glass announcement. And now the questions are "when and how can I get mine?" "When is the release date?" "How much it is?" And "shut up and take my money!"
Project Glass is a research and development program by Google to develop an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD). Project Glass products would display information in smartphone-like format hands-free and could interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands.
But getting your hands on Glass before the tentative 2014 release, might not be as easy as writing a check for the $1,500 that the "developer edition" of Google glass costs. Basically, Google is saying its upcoming product is so awesome that the company is going to have a contest to determine who's going to be able to pay the $1,500 for the first ever edition of Glass
#IfIHadGlass is the name of the contest in which people are supposed to say on Twitter and Google+ how they would use the glasses if they were given a set. Contestants are supposed to tag their ideas (no longer than 50 words) with the #IfIHadGlass. They also can include up to five photos and a 15-second video.
Hurry up early adopters, there's only 8,000 of them.
