Google’s Glass, the ultimate geek interface, is now available for a select few users. The company will select users who post to Google+ or Twitter using the hashtage #ifIHadGlass, and invite them to buy the glasses for $ 1500.
The company has asked users to use the hashtag along with a post describing what they would do with the futuristic product. Many promised to take still more photographs of their kids, but some took the opportunity to poke fun at Google:

#ifihadglass I’d write long meaningless blog posts about how it felt so good to take a weekend away from glass and how I might give up glass
