Tech Talk-Google Glass Beta Testers

Cool, but expensive testing
        In the movie "Minority Report," Tom Cruise's character uses cameras on his fingertips to help see crimes before they happen.
        Google Glass doesn't quite let you see the future.  However, the company says that it does allow you to record the present.
        With simple vocal commands the specs are being touted as allowing wearers to take photos. You can also send text messages and record videos -- all hands free.
        The glasses don't have real lenses - they're essentially a headband with a display screen hooked up to WiFi.  This allows wearers to search the Internet, see driving directions and view language translations on the go.
        As Google refines the project, it's making the glass available to select "beta testers."
        The "testers" will be winners chosen from a competition based on creative tweets.  The rub? Winners will have to spend 15 hundred dollars to buy the device.  That's more than the average lap top.
        Expenses aside, Google, a company known for Internet search domination, is moving even further into the product market.
        It's Android operating system now dominates the smartphone market.  It's introduced the driverless car.
        And now it's pushing into artificial intelligence.  Google Glass, coming soon -- to a face near you.
