Google co-founder Sergey Brin models Google Glasses
Celebrated tech-head Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, has modeled a pair of his firms eagerly anticipated Google Glasses project on the New York subway.
According to The Telegraph Brin was spotted by an eagle-eyed fellow passenger on the system, who happened to be an augmented reality enthusiast, who snapped him nonchalantly reclining in a carriage.
Noah Zerkin wasted no time in tweeting the resulting portrait shot of a bemused Brin to the wider world but not before engaging the billionaire in amiable chit-chat.
The hi-tech glasses do a lot more than Specsavers finest, bestowing the wearer with a fighter pilot style heads up display that streams information via a wireless link.
For those keen to get their hands on the kit to put it through its paces themselves Google will begin shipping test versions of its hardware for $1,500 a pop early this year.
