Google Glass developer kit hits eBay – Have $8,000 to spare?

So you’re excited for Google Glass, but you don’t want to wait to the end of the year to get your hands on them? Well, your wishes have come true, given that you have the greenbacks to throw away. A Google Glass developer kit recently went up on eBay, where it’s currently priced at over $8,000. 

The tangerine colored dev kit was first listed on the 6th of March with a starting bid of $50, and in just a few short days, the price has skyrocketed to over $8,000.  While we’ve seen people make a nice chunk of cash on eBay from the Nexus 4, we’ve yet to see a Google device priced this high.

Google Glass has garnered quite a bit of fanfare (and distaste) since it debuted at last year’s Google I/O, but we’ve yet to see what you’ll actually be seeing behind that lens. The stupid lucky winner of the auction just might be surprised to see how bare bones Google Glass could be when they first strap them on. That will change, of course, but we’d say playing the waiting game would be the better option here.

Most of us here are excited about Google Glass, but throwing down that much cash right now seems a bit silly.

We know waiting can suck, but not waiting looks pretty pricey right about now.
