Want to try Google Glass? Then it’s your lucky day. Google announced Wednesday that it’s opening up the testing program for its wearable high-tech specs to anyone, provided you can impress the company with an application and have $1,500 to spare.
The company said that it’s opening up its explorer program, which had been mainly aimed at developers, to “bold, creative” people who have strong ideas about how they want to use the new technology. According to the contest rules, Google will extend invitations to the top 8,000 applicants with the highest scores.
Applications should be short and sweet— 50 words or less— and must be submitted via Google+ or Twitter. Testing hopefuls can include up to five photos and a 15-second video in their submission , and the application must include the hashtag #ifihadglass.
Those selected must be able to pick up their devices in person in either New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles. Entries must be submitted by 2:59 a.m. Eastern on Feb. 28; contestants must be at least 18 years old.
