Google creates a Twitter and Google+ contest to allow a small number of people to preorder the device. This is the first time preorders are open since 2012 when the original Glass Explorers are chosen. The cost is the same as the previous preorders at $1,500 per unit. Applicants must make an application which can include pictures, video or up to 50 words explaining what they would do if they were chosen to receive Glass. They have to put the hashtag #ifIhadglass somewhere in their application.
Now we want you to get involved and that’s why today we’re expanding our Glass Explorer Program. We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass.
A number of celebrities win the contest, including Soulja Boy, Neil Patrick Harris, Newt Gingrich, and Adam Savage.
