Perhaps the future really is now. Just hours after Google gave the world a glimpse of the future with the Project Glass announcement, the augmented reality glasses have already been spotted out in public on none other than Google co-founder Sergey Brin himself. Sergey showed up to the ‘Dining in the Dark’ charity event at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco sporting the prototype that is reportedly in testing right now. Sergey was more than happy to pose for photos and discuss the project however he politely declined any requests for a quick sample of the equipment!
The prototype model appears to look exactly like the images used for the official announcement. They don’t look that different from your average spectacles and appear compact and lightweight. If they function even half as well as the promo video suggests, this could be a huge advance in mobile communications.
We have a whole bunch of questions we’d love to have answered such as when can we get our hands on these and how much will they cost? Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to find out. In the meantime, check out the photos that tech reporter Robert Scoble managed to snap and be sure to let us know your thoughts on Google’s exciting new project.
