Google Glass Eyewear: While other companies continue to sit back and talk about the future, teasing consumers with the thoughts of high tech devices, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is acting fast.

Even more so, according to Forbes, “you can get one by the end of 2013 by entering and winning a special contest.”
