Google Glass is the next generation of wearable, internet-connected devices, and Sergey Brin believes smartphones are “emasculating” compared to Glass. Sergey recently spoke at the Technology, Education and Design (TED) conference in Los Angeles.
He made a few points about how people interact with phones and the outside world:
“Is this the way you’re meant to interact with other people? It’s kind of emasculating. Is this what you’re meant to do with your body? I have a nervous tic. The cell phone is a nervous habit — If I smoked, I’d probably smoke instead, It’d look cooler. But I whip this out and look as if I have something important to do. It really opened my eyes to how much of my life I spent secluding myself away in email.”
