Even if you don’t need glasses, by the end of this you might be thinking you need glasses.

“They’ll come right up to me and ‘say is that Google Glass?'” said Eric Hart of the curious crowds he’s been drawing lately. “I say ‘yeah, it is. Do you want to check it out?”

Eric Hart of Penryn is one of about 10,000 people of been given an early look at Google Glass. He’s got a pair to see what they can do, and to see what he can do with them.

Google Glass is a little computer screen hovering right above your eyes. It’s a cell phone, a camera and a personal assistant. Oh… and it’s something else.

“I thought right away this would be good for gathering news,” Hart said.

We met Eric while we were covering the series of wildfires in Penryn. He was shooting video with Google Glass. It was handy because he didn’t have to use his hands.

“I was driving the ATV, looking to see if the fire had jumper the railroad tracks,” Hart said.

So how about it, boss? Can we break the glass ceiling?
