Google giving people chance to get internet-connected glasses

Glasses cost $1500 a pair

 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Google Glass could be yours -- with a little luck and a lot of cash.
 
Google is giving a few more people a chance to pay $1,500 for a pair of their Internet-connected glasses. The company is touting the high-tech device as the next breakthrough in mobile computing.
 
Participants in the contest must submit an application of up to 50 words explaining what they would do with the Google Glass technology. The deadline to apply is Feb. 27. The company doesn't plan to start selling Google Glass in the mass market until 2014.
 
The glasses will handle most of the same tasks as smartphones, but respond to voice commands instead of fingers touching a screen.
