Prepare for the onslaught of eBay listing selling Google Glass. Well there has already been one listed but it’s been pulled already with eBay citing presale terms. As in they didn’t have it yet. They claimed that they were picked as an early adopter. I assume they mean with the #ifihadglass campaign, that hasn’t chosen any winners.

i am selling a pair of Google Glasses (Project Glass glasses). I’ve been selected as an early adapter for Google’s upcoming release. you are buying a brand new unopened pair of Google’s Project Glass glasses. i will be personally attending and picking up my pair in either Los Angeles, or New York at Google’s Project Glass launch event, which will take place some time after Feburary 27th. as for what colors will actually be available, will vary, if i am offered a choice, I will choose the color of your choice (see listing picture for variants). my cost to buy my glasses is $1,500 (USD), so obviously thats where ive started the auction at. Project Glass will be shipped with Insurance at my expence, and signature upon delivery, so please use an address you can accept delivery in person.

Yes, that mess above was the actual listing. I wouldn’t trust to put a bid on an auction 1) isn’t released and 2) has bad of grammar. Despite my skepticism, the auction went up to $15,900 before being taken down.

The 8,000 people who have been chosen as the lucky ones to buy Glass will soon be notified by Google on how to pay and claim.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for Google Glass, but not $15,000 excited. Google has said they are going to launch a consumer version for significantly less than $1,500 by the end of the year so I’ll just hold out on a pair for now.
