Wonders of technology never seem to cease. Google has been working on its Project Glass since a year now and has launched a Project Glass website and a Google+ page to share the progress of the project.
Google glasses are no ordinary glasses. They are embedded with smartphone parts, processors , batteries, camera and a glass display.Google has been working on its functionality and also focusing on the aesthetics and making them wearable too.

Google co-founder Sergey Brin said in an interview last year that, “Beauty, style and comfort are as important to Glass as the latest technology.”
Google also has launched a contest on http://www.google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one/ and asked What would you do if you had Glass? Answer with #ifihadglass.
The deadline for applications is February 27th. If you are chosen, Google will reach out to you with an invitation to become a Glass Explorer (please remember to follow us so that we can contact you directly). Explorers will each need to pre-order a Glass Explorer Edition for $1500 plus tax and attend a special pick-up experience, in person, in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles.
The terms and conditions for participating in the contest are as follows:
· Your application must be 50 words or less
· You must include #ifihadglass in your application
· You can include up to 5 photos with your application
· You can include a short video (15 secs max)
· You must be at least 18 years old and live in the U.S. to apply
It seems to be a very promising product and I am sure it won’t take long for children in future to question their parents that how was it ever possible for people to go out without their Google glasses…
