Google Glass is up for #ifihadglass Applicants

Google Glass is up for #ifihadglass Applicants

At the I/O, the Google Glass Explorer Program got underway the previous year and its members were able to order the wearable technology for the next generation. The glasses fitted with a computer within them were not for the faint of heart. Offering a seamless experience it was the latest and greatest of devices ever invented by the hands of man. As for the rest of the crowd of technology lovers, they had to enter their names on the #ifihadglass contest on Twitter. The good news is that Google is now ready to hand out the glasses to these people as well but for a price. Worth $1600, each pair of glasses will be shipped off to the winners as officially announced by Google on Wednesday. The whole shebang started when Google sent an inquiry regarding how people would employ the glasses. With scads of entries Google selected less than 10,000 for the final list. This is the first time the common people who make up the public are getting Google Glass samples in return for money in their mail boxes.

The original idea was that people would attach a short essay of 50 words to the hashtag #ifihadglass and send it on Twitter. The number of ideas was limited to three and five photographs as well a brief video clip were expected. And the head honchos at Google decided that once an application was sent it cannot be changed. Therefore it was a no return, no deposit deal. Then began the long short listing process based on level of creativity and originality as well as several other factors. How persuasive these essays were was also a very important marker of winning capability among the candidates. Finally the 8000 winners became the focal point of the contest and today they are about to receive their wearable wonders in the mail.

The news was greeted with joy and jubilance among those who had participated and won. It was like a dream come true. At long last these passionate and lively people had won the desired object of their wildest fantasies. They were genuinely ecstatic and their happiness knew no bounds. Wearing glasses has never seemed such a positive thing but this time around it definitely is a source of infinite glee.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
