Test a Free (Prototype) Google Glass with Augmented Reality & Video Conversation

Google glass project (a face based wearable computer) seems to get ahead and will soon be out of its ‘tortoise shell’,

To test a Google glass with augmented reality technology, ahead of all in the world, there is an application contest, in which any guy from any walk of life can participate, but listen me first, you have to prove that you are one of the best fit and worth to try Google glass with augmented reality and communication ability.

Google has a new ‘Glass’ website, where you can know, how Google glass feels, looks etc, what it will do and how to get one?!

An example is given there, when you have to shoot a picture, just give a command in your voice, ‘shoot the picture’ and the little ‘Genie’ the Google glass will obey the voice of its master and do the things for you like any virtual assistant, or record a video, hand free, share what you see with Google magical eyes on the Go, get directions, and many more amazing things .. for few things it may look similar to Apple’s wonder mysterious virtual voice girl SIRI : ) but it is much ahead, much more than of SIRI,

How to win a test ride for free prototype to test Google glasses ahead of the world?

-         Last date to apply: February 27, 2013, (11:59 PM PST)
-         Age should be above or 18 years,
-         But it would NOT be a free ride, Google says:

“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.

Zdnet tells the difference, what is free and what is not for the contest winners:

Google has revealed that non-developers will be able to get their hands on a prototype (edition) of the upcoming Google Glass device if they can sell their vision of what they'd use it for in 50 words or less…..However, there's no such thing as a free lunch for would-be Glass owners: competition winners will still need to spend $1,500 (+taxes) to get their Explorer Edition (this would be released to the general public approx. a year after) of the glasses.

Google clarifies:

Do I have to purchase Glass if I get an invitation to be a Glass Explorer?

Nope. It’s totally up to you if you want to purchase Glass.
But: Glass Explorers have the opportunity to purchase one (1) Glass device at a cost of $1,500 USD (plus any applicable tax). Glass Explorers will receive purchase instructions and a link to an e-commerce site where they can then place their orders. Payment must be made at the time of order."

NYT reveals:

"In a video released Wednesday, Google offered some of its own ideas about what to do with the glasses. A ballerina could stream live video behind the scenes and onstage, a tourist in Thailand could ask Google to translate “delicious” while eating noodles on a boat or a family could video chat with a long-distance relative on her birthday."

What to do, how to enter contest?

You have to suggest, in 50 or less words, to Google, a reply to this $1500 worth question:

What would you do if you had Glass?

Answer with #ifihadglass

"(#ifihadglass is sponsored by Anomaly, with principal place of business at 536 Broadway FL 11, New York, NY 10012, USA (“Anomaly”),"

.. And wait for the Google’s announcement that if you have won a ‘prize, you will get Google’s invitation than and you can get-set-go than thereafter,

Google instructions:

We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass. We’d love to make everyone an Explorer, but we’re starting off a bit smaller. We’re still in the early stages, and while we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting.

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

What after this?

Google says further:

The 8,000 Applications that receive the highest overall scores, based on the above-listed criteria, will be selected as the potential invitees to become Glass Explorers (“Invitees”). Limit one invitation per person. In the event an Invitee is disqualified for any reason, Google may, at its sole discretion, choose the Application that received the next highest total score as an Invitee.

In mid-to-late March 2013, the Invitees will be selected and notified by private message on Twitter or Google+, based on their method of Application. Invitees must have followed Glass on Twitter or Google+ (depending on their method of Application) in order to be able to receive invitations. All notification requirements, as well as other requirements within these Terms, will be strictly enforced.

In the event that no Applications are received, no invitations will be issued. In the event fewer than 8,000 Applications are received, Google will send as many invitations as it deems meet the evaluation criteria, in its sole discretion.


All 8,000 Invitees who are selected will receive an invitation to become Glass Explorers (no commercial value).
