You might get a chance to get your hands on Google Glass sooner than you expected. The Financial Times is reporting that Google is making "tens of thousands" more pairs in the next few months.

The first ever porno shot with Google Glass has wrapped and I don't know whether to laugh, cry or run away. Google might have put the kibosh on allowing X-rated apps onto Glass (for now), but that hasn't stopped the porn industry from doing what they do best: using new technology to enhance the, um, adult experience.
Sherpa, the popular natural language digital assistant Android app, is coming to Google Glass and other Android-based wearables the company announced today. Although there isn't a firm timeline for rollout, Sherpa founder and CEO, Xabier Uribe-Etxebarría, tells me the company is looking to launch on Android-powered wearables by the end of 2013 or early 2014.
Remember last year's I/O keynote and all the skydiving and bike riding shenanigans Google pulled? That was fun! Not to mention the big reveal: Google Glass. But if you managed to catch yesterday's three hour keynote, you probably noticed that Glass was noticeably absent. What's up with that?
William Gibson has long been known as something of a prophet, predicting everything from reality TV to "cyberspace" itself. Way back in 1981 AD, William Gibson imagined something very similar to Google Glass when he introduced us to Molly Millions, the badass cyborg with a screen-like digital eye augmentation. But we'd yet to see Gibson weigh in on Glass. Until now.
Google Glass are only just now being delivered, so we're starting to see the very first videos taken with them. But this pleasant clip of a viola through Glass is our favourite use yet.
Even though we've seen Google Glass be leaked, be announced, be presented, be demoed, be worn, be used and even be mocked, it's always represented some far off future technology that we never were sure if it would ever be real (in a I can't believe it's already here kind of way). But it's totally happening guys. And this is what it looks like.
After letting people know that they owe Google $US1500 for the honour of getting Google Glass early, Google busted the ol' primary school Indian Giver on them. Meaning, some of those "winners" won't be able to get Google Glass because they've been disqualified by Google. I wonder who those people are.
When Google started its Glass-giving spree, it picked out some odd picks. It got so bad that some of those offers got pulled. But you can bet these celebrity winners will get their copies.
We already knew about the lucky six who will officially have the honour of paying Google $US1500 in exchange for Glass and the shame and ridicule that will soon follow. But now @projectglass is announcing the rest of the lucky winners by replying individually to their #ifihadglass tweets. Here's a sampling of the trailblazers in all their glory. There will be 8000 in total.
