Google Co-Founder Brin Spotted On New York Subway Wearing Google Glasses
New York subway riders may have seen a man last week that looked a little like a hobo, a little like a secret agent. In fact, the traveler was one of the richest men in the world, Google co-founder Sergey Brin, and he was testing the company’s augmented reality “Google Glasses.” Brin, 39, was photographed by wearable-computing enthusiast Noah Zerkin.
Come to think of it, perhaps I should’ve mentioned my projects to Mr. Brin. Or given him my card. Derp.

Google Glass, one of the developments to come out of Google’s top-secret X Projects, consists of wearable glasses that include a screen showing computer data at the edge of the right eye’s field of vision. When connected to a wireless network, the glasses can feed information about the scene in view based on location and Google search data.
