      Google challenges nonprofits on ideas to use Glass

      WASHINGTON (AP) - Google has a challenge for U.S. nonprofits.

      On Tuesday, the tech giant is asking nonprofit groups to propose ideas for how to use the Web-connected eyewear Google Glass in their work. Five charities that propose the best ideas by May 20 will get a free pair of the glasses, a trip to Google for training and a $25,000 grant to help make their project a reality.

      Already, Google has been testing Glass with nonprofits in their field work.

      Conservationists at the Washington-based World Wildlife Fund have been using Google Glass for hands-free field research.

      In Nepal, a research officer has been using Google Glass to track, photograph and monitor rhinos to help protect them from poaching in areas that are inaccessible by vehicles.
