Google Glass Wants Your Help: Company Rolls Out Twitter Recruiting Campaign, Even Newt Gingrich Answers 'What Would I do #IfIHadGlass? [VIDEO]

Google wants you to ask yourself one question: What would I do #ifIhadglass?

In a new Twitter campaign for Google's Google Glass, glasses able to transmit real time "Mission Impossible"-style messages in front of the user's eyeball, the company asks buyers interested in becoming product explorers to tweet the hashtag #ifIhadglass.

The "winners" of the best tweets will earn the privilege of buying Google Glass for $1,500. The selling point is that these Google Glass explorers would be the only people in the world to have the technology, which Google is still developing.

"We're looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass," reads the company's website. "We'd love to make everyone an Explorer, but we're starting off a bit smaller. We're still in the early stages, and while we can't promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting.'

"I'd hook them up w/my gloves to help me navigate music making in 3D," tweeted Imogen Heap with the #ifIhadglass hashtag on Wednesday.

Mark Miscavage wrote in a tweet that he would use Google Glass to live in a world of the past.

"I would record videos for years, and fast forward them really fast and re-live everything. Google Glass," Miscavage tweeted.

Even 2012 republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich got into the #ifihadglass fun, tweeting, "I would take it on tours of zoos and museums to share the animals and fossils."

But Google Glass, which looks something like a cross between Kanye West sunglasses and the headgear LeVar Burton wore on "Star Trek: The Next Generation," doesn't appeal to everyone.

"I don't want my glasses to remind me, 'See Jess tonight 6:30,'" wrote NPR's Linda Holmes in an article about Google Glass back in the development stage called Project Glass. "I want to suddenly remember that I'm meeting Jess at 6:30 and have it make me smile-'Oh, hey, this is the night I'm hanging out with Jess!'"

Twitter user Minnie Maus is already in a homicidal rage about the whole thing.

"i wuld take teh glass nd shuv it down ur throat so u wuld bleid tu deth #regards," she tweeted.
