Google’s own Sergey Brin spotted in the wild sporting Project Glass prototype

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.

Originally from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, I'm now living in the UK's second city, Birmingham. I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.

    Cool gadget! But do people who wear glasses everyday can’t use this?
