#IfIHadGlass winners are a mix of celebs and regular people

0. phoneArena 30 Mar 2013, 15:23 posted on

Google hasn't officially released the list of 8,000 winners of the #IfIHadGlass contest (although, is it really a "contest" if the "winners" still have to pay $1500 for the "prize?) But, Google has been notifying the winners through public forums like Twitter and Google+, so Ph.D student Andrej Karpathy has been able to gather some stats about the winners...

Wish I had $1500 burning a hole in my pocket. Hopefully they cut the price at least by half when it comes to the masses.

Knew they wouldn't give much to the regular people, its more of a marketing campaign instead of a testing on the Google Glass.

No one is getting it for free. As stated in the first sentence of this article, the "winners" of the contest still have to pay $1500 for Glass.
