SAN FRANCISCO — Google is giving more people a chance to pay $1,500 for a pair of the Internet-connected glasses that the company is touting as the next breakthrough in mobile computing.
The product, dubbed ‘‘Google Glass,’’ will be offered to ‘‘bold, creative individuals’’ selected as part of a contest announced Wednesday. Participants must live in the United States and submit an application of up to 50 words explaining what they would do with the Google Glass technology. Entries must include the hash tag ‘‘ifihadglass’’ and be submitted through Google Plus or Twitter by next Wednesday. Google did not say how many glasses it will sell this way.
