How would you like to be the first person to lose a $1,500 set of Google Glass? Well fear no longer as someone has already managed to do just that. Say hello to Luke Wroblewski. Wroblewski admits to the fact he lost his set of Glass last night while heading through an airport. According to Google, this is a major first for Glass.

[It's] pretty nerve-racking. It's an expensive and still-rare item - plus I've been using them to develop Glassware. So [it's] not good on a number of fronts.

 

Just like losing a smartphone, Glass contains personal and sensitive information. In Wroblewski's case, his Glass was synced to various accounts, such as e-mail and Facebook, making the loss that much more painful. Google already has a remedy in place: Users can remotely wipe their Glass.
