Google Glass Now Being Offered To #ifihadglass Contest Winners

google-my-glass-iconGoogle has started to slowly expand the group of testers for Google Glass.

The company has announced (on both Twitter and Google+) that it’ll be inviting #ifihadglass winners “slowly” and “over the next few weeks.” This is from the Google+ post:

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.

The messaging is slightly different on Twitter, where the message says that “selected” #ifihadglass winners will be getting invites.


In either case, those of you who were chosen in the contest should be following @projectglass on Twitter or have Project Glass in your Google+ circles.

What You Should Get From Google

If you’re curious, this is the email that I received in late April when I was invited to follow-through on my pre-order from last year’s Google I/O conference:


At its recent I/O conference, Google announced that it had finished sending out invites to the 2,000 or so original Explorers from last year’s pre-orders. There are an estimated 8,000 more #ifihadglass winners, so it may take a little longer for Google to get through all of those invites.

    Now I gotta figure out how to pay for this!

    Maybe before we rush to adopt Google Glass we should stop to consider the consequences of blithely giving this technology such a central position in our lives.
