Update: this fundraiser has hit it's goal. thank you to everyone who donated: midnightgoddess,-name omitted by request-,and An-Tim Nguyen.
I am waiting for my e-mail from Google for details in the purchase. but if Google makes me have to travel to 1 of 3 cities then I will be unable to buy the product and will then do the refunds. but right now google is not giving us a straight answer. if they force us to travel I will not ask you guys for more money. I'll cancel the project and evenetually buy my own google glass when it comes out for everyone later this year (or possibly 2014 google's also not clear on the product release date)
I was selected to beta test googles wearable computer named google glass.
unfortunately I found out that the prototype cost me 1,500$
I have been running an open ended fundraiser on my youtube channel. I have raised 1,300$ USD.
I have made it so that if you want to donate for any amount and you want to make a request of me. it can be humiliating but i t cannot break the law or put myself or my family in danger. beyond that there is little I wouldn't do to raise the rest of the 200$
now I don't usually do this sort of thing. but I am willing to be transparent. I either need the money by may or june they aren't giving us solid ideals of this yet.
but if the payment time comes and I don't reach the above goal. then I am more then fine with issuing a full refund.
in edition to a request you will also get an additional request once I have the google glass. it can be a task or a video you want or maybe you just want to see what it's like to ride a bike with one on.
if you wish to make a request then please pm me the request of what you want me to do for your donation.
