My plans for Google Glass: I'm an #ifihadglass winner, and so are you

Back in February Google setup a contest using the hashtag #ifihadglass on both Twitter and Google+ where entrents told Google what they would do with Glass if they had it. Once the 8000 winners were selected and notified the big waiting game began. As someone that in of the 8000 winners I’ve been watching my Google+ notifications and my inbox in hopes of being notified. Because I’ll be sharing my experiences here as I go, you’ll get an almost first hand look into what Google Glass is capable of.

ProjectGlass on Google+ posted this update yesterday:

You told us what you would do #ifihadglass, now’s your chance to show us

Our Explorer Program started last year at our I/O conference when developers signed up to be the first people to try Glass. Last Tuesday, we finished inviting these developers to officially join the Explorer Program and we’re already seeing amazing things come from them. They’ve really embraced the Explorer spirit — the spirit of someone who’s ready to jump in, get their hands dirty and take on a challenge.

In February, we opened up the Explorer Program by asking people across Google+ and Twitter what they would do if they had Glass. We were looking for bold, creative individuals to become our next wave of Explorers — and wow, did we get them. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be slowly rolling out invitations to successful #ifihadglass applicants. If you were one of the successful applicants, please make sure you have+Project Glass in your Circles so we can send you a message.

We’re thrilled to be moving into the next phase of our Explorer Program and we hope to expand in the future. Unfortunately, we aren’t taking any more applications right now, but you can sign up here to stay informed:

Now I’m just waiting along with my 7999 fellow entry winners so we can make our way to one of 3 locations: Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York to hand over $1500+tax and walk away with some cool new tech. I’ll be posting more in the upcoming weeks when I’m notified of my pickup date.
