Between smartphones and tablets, mobile technology is becoming more and more advanced. Well one new device developed by Google is said to change the face of mobile creativity as we know it.

Google Glass was finished and shown last April. It's a lightweight headset that lets you do everything a smartphone or tablet can do.

Glass has a small screen, viewable by mirrored glass above the wearer's right eye. The device allows you by verbal command to take photos, videos, send messages, navigate from one place to another, translate languages, share what you see live, and so much more.

Yesterday, Google release a perspective video, showing what someone wearing Glass would see. The video was released and Google Glass was put on pre-sale...for a select group of people.

How do you get your hands on Glass? Google says they're looking for bold, creative individuals who want to be apart of the 'Glass Journey.'

To apply, all you need to do is tweet Google what you would do if you had Glass. You can include photos and videos, and just need to make sure to use #IfIHadGlass.

If chosen, Google will send you an invitation to become a 'Google Glass Explorer' where you will need to pre-order the device for $1,500. You would also need to attend a special pick-up experience in person in either New York City, San Francisco, or Los Angeles.

That date has yet to be determined.

If it succeeds, Google Glass will change the way we view mobile technology.
