Over the past few weeks, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, and other Google employees have been wearing Google Glasses out in public. This does not take into account their myriad of talk show appearances.
When Brin recently appeared on The Gavin Newsom Show, he was controlling the glasses on Newsom from a track pad on the side. Wired reports:
In the video, Brin navigates the system via a touchpad on the right side of the headset behind the display. He slides his finger forward and back to locate a photo he took of Gavin Newsom with the contraption. He then places the headset on Newsom’s face, and continues to navigate until the photo is located. [...] Newsom felt that the glasses were “incredibly light, comfortable and inconspicuous”. Brin has publicly stated that the glasses will be in retail stores “sometime next year”.
Now that we have seen so much of the glasses, how do you think the project will turn out? Are you excited for the release next year?
