    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 Goolge 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...

    This is incredible technology
    What do you think, weeks, months, years before this is common place, order from Amazon gear ?

    Unless they can make it such that the center of view is always transparent?

    I think these should be banned from release-- for some idiot would wear them and try to drive...

    No I would use something like this.
    I can watch my speed, map, and the road, all at the same time.

    The same thing could be said about a number of things....firearm ownership, lipstick (putting it on while driving is a distraction), smartphones (using them while driving is dangerous), drivethroughs (eating while driving is a distraction), etc.

    Most of the Android apps I use have ads plastered all over them, there's no reason to suppose these glasses will be any different.

    I just wonder how long it will be before someone is killed wandering around blindly using these things. As if being "powered" by Google isn't bad enough, the safety implications are quite obvious.

    There is the neural sensory overdrive that these glasses could have on people. It will make your brain have to stay focused on information all the time, which will cause stress and anxiety. It will also have an negative effect on cognative function and memory. Your brain needs to train and to learn by association not by getting ready made maps and always solving your problems by using a google search function. I can't believe google is so stupid....
    They should expand on tablet apps, make an google office suite (perhaps buying and intergrating open office?)

    Google is a poser company

    B60 TF101 16gb WW version. Never rooted.
