Now that Google Glass has an iOS app, who wants an invitation?

Now that Google Glass has an iOS app, who wants an invitation?

Our friendly neighborhood Android Central EiC, Phil Nickinson has a couple of extra Google Glass invitations, and since the official MyGlass iOS app has now launched, he's generously offered to give them to a couple of iMore readers who'd like to get in on the ground floor of Glass. There are some pretty stiff requirements, however:

  • Must be a US resident
  • Must be 18 years or older
  • Must purchase Glass for $1500
  • Must provide a U.S. based shipping address OR pick up the device in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles

If you meet all of those criteria, and are absolutely willing to shell out the cash for Glass, leave a comment below telling Phil you want one of the two (2) invitations!

Not at $1.5k I don't :)

sgillila777 says:

Agreed. I'll let the trailblazers pay the big $$$ and consider it once the platform is more ironed out and economies of scale have brought the price down by at least half. That said, I would live one had I $1500 burning a hole in my pocket :)

Derrick4Real says:

Ha Ha Ha! $1500. Ridiculous. They could cut it in half and it'd still be crazy.

Daantjeeuh says:

It's such bullsh*t you have to be a US resident.. But I guess that's (just like with Apple) the only place all their products and services really work and come to their justice :/

Phil Nickinson says:

I'm pretty sure it has to do with legalities and lawyers and stuff.

Daantjeeuh says:

It hasn't, as there is a hand full of Glass Explorers in the EU

worknman says:

Right, and I'm sure people constantly bitching about it on tech blogs is going to do a lot to change the situation :P

Chad Walters1 says:

spencerdl says:

Hummm, I do fit the requirements

rcap056 says:


I have to admit I am pretty new to imore (this is my first comment), but I have loved using the site ever since the new ipad announcements! I meet all of the requirements and would absolutely give back to the community by sharing my impressions of google glass if that would be helpful. Being picked would be absolutely amazing, please let me know if there is anything else you would like to know about me or how I would use glass! Thank you for the opportunity!

Also I would immediately pick them up from the New York location, lol.

Steve Tahoma says:

Hi Phil. I meet all the criteria and would like to purchase Glass to use at my business. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

beathookup says:

I'm in! Can talk my company into reimbursing me for it too!

mellomarsh says:

If they're not already gone, I'll take an invitation. I work in IT, and my company wants to get one. They'll be happy to pay $1500.

Mariam936 says:

Uhhhhhhhhhhh who will want to pay $1500 for a pair of glasses? I won't be able to see through them anyways, since I wear prescription glass

I meet all the requirements... except residency! (Not happy)

If you want someone to test it in Australia and willing to forgo that single rule... count me in!

pintac says:

I would gladly accept an invitation! I am long in HIMX/MIMVI and really have a vested interest.
Thank you for your consideration, and yes, I meet all requirements! YEOWWW!
