It only lasted a few hours before eBay has taken down a fake auction from an eBay seller claiming to have a pair of Google Glass. The auction went up to $15,900, showing massive demand for the augmented reality glasses that Google recently unveiled.
In the auction, the seller claimed (how perfect, as Google doesn’t have its early adopters sorted out yet?!) he’s going to get the Google Glass through Google’s #ifihadglass competition.
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.
Unfortunately for the seller, the claim was completely false, as Google will not be letting winners know until mid-March. In fact, the competition only closed today. Winners are also barred from reselling the devices, as per Google’s rules.
