    Google Shows Off Google Glass UI in New Video; New Pseudo-Contest Detailed Too


    We have a couple of intriguing "action-items" to share with you guys today regarding Google's next big innovation, Google Glass. If you are curious about what the final Google Glass user interface will look like, then check out the video above. After seeing the concept of augmented reality start to live up to its promise, this device is more exciting than ever. If you remember back just a few years, smartphones where thought of as strange an unnecessary devices when they first got started, and now look at how much of an impact they have made on the world. It's entirely possible we are witnessing the birth of another new technology which will be just as disruptive and ground-breaking.

    The video above isn't all we have either. If the new video entices you to want one of these devices, but you are not a developer, then you might be excited to learn about Google's new Google Glass pseudo-contest. We call it a pseudo-contest because you won't be able to get one of the first versions for free, but you can potentially win a chance to pay $1500 for one of these devices and be one of the first non-developers to get one. You can become a non-developer "Explorer" by defining what you would do with a set of Google Glasses in a maximum 50 word essay on Twitter or Google+. Here's a quote and link with the details,

    How to apply

    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.

    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.
