Calling all Seattle geeks: Here’s your chance to try Google Glass

googleglassesYou’ve certainly heard of Google Glass, watched videos of people wearing the specs and read articles about the yet-to-be released wearable device.

But you probably haven’t tried Glass out — until now.

Google is giving those living in Seattle the opportunity to test out their high-tech specs on April 5th and 6th. The company is setting up shop at Sodo Park and you can RSVP here for a one-hour time slot that should give you enough time to find directions, take pictures and surf the web with Glass.

Google has done something similar in Durham, Detroit, Austin and Atlanta to give the public a chance to check out its device, which has so far only been available for $1,500 to a select group of about 8,000 early adopters and developers. The company is expected to sell Glass at some point this year.

A warning for Google or anyone else who accidentally walks away with Glass still on their head: Stay as far away as possible from the 5 Point Cafe.

    Google historically depended on its several advertising platforms for more than 90% of its revenues, but that share has declined slightly since the acquisition of
    Motorola in 2012

    Google traditionally earned almost all its
    revenues from advertising services up until it acquired Motorola Mobility,
    which now accounts for 8% of its total revenues
