Your Attempts to Get Google Glass Are Pretty Embarrassing

We offered our first born. That's a totally normal thing to do, right?

Google announced a campaign this morning that would allow non-developers to score a pair of Google Glass by tweeting a missive about what you’d do with the specs along with the hashtag #ifihadglass. The whole thing quickly devolved into a bunch of bad Twitter jokes. But techies, it seems, are pretty desperate to get their hands on Glass.

First, we have tech writer Jason Kincaid, who made a music video about how badly he wants Glass. If he doesn’t win, at least now the Internet knows what a magical singing voice he has.

Business Insider writer Nich Carlson wants to use it to make “better, experience based slideshows.” NEW MEDIA JACKPOT.

There were the suckups:

The impossibly topical entries:

The geniuses:

The humblebraggers:

And of course, the doubters.

As for Betabeat, we made the completely rational and reasonable offer of our left kidney, but are still waiting for a response from Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google/Babies.
