Google is on the hunt for creative, unique individuals to test out Google Glass, its Internet-connected headset.But the clock is ticking for the general public to convince Google that they’re the right person for the Glass Explorer program. 

Last week, Google started accepting applications for everyday people to join the Glass Explorer program. (Previously, only Google employees and a limited set of developers have had access to the gear.)

Anyone interested in testing out Glass has until tomorrow to post on Google+ or on Twitter what they would do if they had Glass. (The posts had to mention the hashtag, or keyword,  “#ifihadglass.”)

Here a few of the more interesting use cases we stumbled upon. Some are very heartwarming, some are entirely practical, and others are more comedic.
