Queuing up to bid on a brand new tester pair of Google's Project Glass "smart" spectacles on eBay?

Don't bother. The listing is long gone. 

The backstory: Last week, the Internet's attention was drawn to eBay item 221192598719 – allegedly a pair of brand new Google glasses. The seller, bla7kcat promised free delivery on the device, and posted an opening price of $1,500.

Within a couple days, more than 33 bids had been entered, with a top bid of $15,225, according to a screen grab captured by The Daily Dot. 

"I've been selected as an early adapter for Google's upcoming release," bla7kcat wrote in the description field. "You are buying a brand new unopened pair of Google's Project Glass glasses. I will be personally attending and picking up my pair in either Los Angeles, or New York at Google's Project Glass launch event, which will take place some time after [Feb.] 27th. As for what colors will actually be available... if I am offered a choice, I will choose the color of your choice." 

But by this afternoon, eBay item 221192598719 was removed for the site. And probably for good reason – we have our doubts it was for real.
