Google has launched a new competition that will let non-developers get their hands on the company’s internet-enabled glasses, Google Glass.

Google is asking entrants to tag their big ideas, which must be no longer than 50 words, with the hashtag #ifIhadglass. Entrants are also allowed to use up to five photos and a video up to 15 seconds in length for a chance to win one of 8,500 pairs up for grabs.

The hands free device allows users to translate their voice into other language, speak to send a message, share what they see live and get directions right in front of them, just to name a few features.

Thanks to Ed Stull for today’s fodder.
