Which Celebrities Won The Chance To Pilot Google Glass?

Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) announced the winners of the lottery for their new Google Glass. Among the list of winners are (drumroll, please) politician Newt Gingrich, actor Neil Patrick Harris, and rapper Soulja Boy.

According to CNET, the winners of the drawing earned the chance to pay Google $1,500 to be on the shortlist of users of Google Glass. In terms of Twitter followers, Neil Patrick Harris (who plays Barney Stinson on the hit series How I Met Your Mother) was the most popular winner.

Gingrich, the former Republican presidential candidate, tweeted that, “#ifihadglass i would take it on tours of zoos and museums to share the animals and fossils — @projectglass.”

Rapper Matisyahu, another winner, tweeted, “#ifihadglass I’d use them to film a stage dive from my view http://t.co/x8oH7QDMIN @projectglass.”

One can only hope that both of these tweets actually come to fruition, as well as Google Glass appearing in an episode of How I Met Your Mother, likely aiding Barney in wooing another unsuspecting woman.
