Google announced today in a post on Google+ that the results from its #ifihadglass contest are in and the winners will be contacted with invitations to the Google Glass Explorer program over the next few days.
We could never have imagined such an enthusiastic response! There were so many creative, diverse, and (sometimes) crazy applications. We’ve certainly learned a lot through this whole process and it’s inspiring to hear how much passion there is for Glass.
Google didn’t mention availability for those who signed up for the $1,500 Explorer Edition at last year’s Google I/O, but we’ll likely hear more on availability for others with invitations going out to contest winners in the near future.
Google noted in today’s post that it currently isn’t offering the Explorer Program to businesses, but it will work “on connecting with businesses in other ways.” Those who received an invitation to the Explorer program will be able to pick up their Glass at one of several events planned for later this year in New York, San Fran, and L.A. Invitations will be announced through @projectglass on Twitter and +Project Glass on Google+.
