With something that looks like it came out of a SCI-FI movie, Google has released a demo video showing off the UI of their Google Glass project, which provides augmented reality in a pair of glasses. Its a wearable headset and glasses that also allows you to take pictures and video, all voice controlled.

Previously, the pre-orders were limited to developers that were willing to put down $1500 on the headset glasses. This week, they’ve opened up the pre-orders to “creative individuals”. To find out more, you can visit their #ifihadglass page.

The #ifihadglass competition is open to US residents only, and you must be over 18 to enter. To apply, you’ll need to write 50 words on less explaining what you’d do if you had Glass, starting with the hashtag #ifihadglass. You can also include up to 5 photos with the application, and a 15 seconds video. You’ll also need $1,500.
