(CNA)-Google is starting to distribute its new Internet-connected glasses, something seen as the next breakthrough in mobile computing, Fox News reports.

Google has picked 8,000 people in the U.S. who entered a contest. The winners will have to pay $1,500 apiece for a test version of Google Glass.

The excitement stems from a belief that Google Glass is at the forefront of a new wave of technology known as “wearable computing.” Published reports say that Google, Apple Inc. and others also are working on Internet-connected wristwatches.

Google hopes to lower prices by the time it’s on the mass market next year.
