On Thursday, Christian Ponder was invited to be one of the first people to try out this new technology. Last month, Google told enthusiasts to pitch an idea for what they would do if they had the glasses. Ponder, was among the thousands who pitched an idea to test Google Glass, and he was one of the so far 8,000 people to be invited to test them out.
If you don't already know, Google Glass is a pair of eyeglasses that act and do many functions of smartphone such as take a picture/video, text message, call, show you directions, etc. Here's a video if you want more info:
Here's the tweet he made to Google Glass:
@cponder7 You’re invited to join our #glassexplorers program. Woohoo! Make sure to follow us - we’ll DM in the coming weeks.

Google Glass isn't available to just anybody yet. It's expected to be available to the public by 2014, so I bet Christian Ponder is really excited to try them out, and to record the Vikings journey to the super bowl!
