Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

If you really think that Glass is just a glorified webcam, that would be fine if Google was selling it now: Ah! Another half-baked Google product!

But here, we have one of Google's co-founder trying to woo as many people in the audience as possible and offering to order it on a very limited basis - US I/O attendees only, meaning motivated developers close from their lab. They are not trying to scam some uneducated, misinformed, helpless people.

Well it isn't demonstrated as anything more than a glorified webcam...

What it all looks like is, yes, trying very hard to woo devs, to make them emotionally invested in the product - and "oh please, maybe they'll figure out something remotely sensible to do with that (premature) thing"
