SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Google is giving a few more people a chance to pay $1,500 for a pair of the Internet-connected glasses that the company is touting as the next breakthrough in mobile computing.
The product, dubbed "Google Glass," will be offered to those selected as part of a contest announced Wednesday. Participants 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.
Google Inc. didn't say how many winning entries it would pick. 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.
