    Google's Co-Founder Sergey Brin Spotted in Public Wearing Project Glass Prototype


    Here's something you may not see everyday: one of the co-founders of one of the largest and most influential corporations on the planet out and about using a prototype of one of his companies "pet projects." Apparently, Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google is one of the "beta-testers" of their coolest new project, "Project Glass", aka Google Goggles. Here's a quote from the Engadget article with some of the details:

    It would appear company co-founder Sergey Brin already knows, as he was spotted by tech pundits Robert Scoble and Thomas Hawk rocking a prototype at a Dining in the Dark charity event for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Scoble has already posted a couple of pictures with Brin on Google+, mentioning more photos would be forthcoming from Hawk after the event concluded and that he'd heard other people, including Google exec Vic Gundotra, have the devices already. For now he mentions the glasses appeared to be "self contained" and that he could see a blueish light flashing on Brin's eyes.
    That's pretty cool! If he can already start testing them in real-world situations, then they may not be too far off from an actual production model after-all. We will keep you apprised of this interesting and evolving tech.

    As an aside, it's hard not to wonder if Sergey Brin has run into any street poles...

    Really freakin' cool but if that isn't an unsafe distraction, then I don't know what is.

    I bet it wouldn't be any more distracting than looking down all the time when on the phone. You would just need to get used to it.

    I'd definitely like to try these puppies out! I'd imagine the price tag would be around $200-400 easy at least... Now, how on earth would they connect to all those features without free public wifi everywhere? ...hmmm....another toy for the cell companies i guess
