You're not a developer and didn't win out over the other trillion people who entered Google's #ifihadglass contest, so you'll just have to wait until the proper release, right? Perhaps not -- if you're rich, that is -- as one unit is being offered on eBay, with bids already clocking in at over $90,000. If you've got that kind of money, don't get excited just yet -- for starters, the seller claims they are one of the lucky contest winners, but won't actually pick up their pair for a "few weeks." We don't have any reason to doubt the seller, however, as they've been an eBay member since 2004, and with 100% positive feedback, a false listing would arguably be out of character. Google may not be happy, though, as it was very clear that the Explorer Edition coming to devs was not to be resold or even gifted, and we assume the same restrictions will apply to contest winners. Thus, we expect El Goog will intervene, but before it's possibly pulled, you can watch the bids rise at the source link below.

[Thanks, Nochum]

Update: And... it's gone. We imagine the seller was contacted by Google, and a note on the now defunct listing shows they weren't happy with the amount of attention the listing received, nor with those "who have driven up the price for their own amusement."
