Only Google could pull something like this off – and nearly flawlessly. At the recent Google I/O conference, attendees were surprised when Google co-founder Sergey Brin showed up, and along with the Project Glass team put on  a ridiculous product demo of Google Glass. After the demo the crowd was given the first opportunity to pre-order the new technology for $1500, due out sometime in early 2013. Unfortunately, unless you were there, you won’t be able to purchase the glasses for another couple years, at the minimum.

Doesn’t this demo sort of mimic Google’s audacity, and their somewhat recklessness as they continue to plow full speed into so many new endeavors? Somehow, they continue to succeed.
