Google expands Glass pre-orders

Google is known for its amazing start-up projects like its purchase of Android OS. When it announced its wearable augmented reality gadget project, Google Glass, last year, the world was amazed and thrilled about it. Since then, many Google employees, including Sergey Brin himself, have field tested the project by touring across US and other countries visiting and snapping pictures of daily life and high profile events.

The opportunity to pre-order this amazing project was only made available to 1500 attendees(which include media persons and developers) of Google I/O 2012, the launch stage of Google Glass. Now, this has changed as Google has decided to expand pre-orders for the Glass and they are "looking for bold, creative individuals" to join them so that more number of users can "be a part of shaping the future of glass".

To get your hands on Google Glass, you need to answer to "What would you do if you had Glass?" to Google as this is the question they are asking and have focused on in their latest promotion video. You can answer the question by writing it on Twitter or Google+, with a #ifihadglass hash tag, in not more than 50 words. Other than this, you need to be atleast 18 years old and live in US. Unfortunately, if, like me, you too live outside US, than you will have to wait.

The latest promotion video tells us how Glass can be useful and fun in daily life. Lets see "How It Feels".
