Google Co-founder Sergey Brin Wears Project Glass in Public

Remember those insanely cool augmented reality glasses from Google that we told you about earlier this week?

While some immediately labeled it as vaporwear, it seems that it's real – kinda. Google co-founder Sergey Brin was seen at a charity event in the Bay Area wearing a graphite colored version of what was originally pictured with the model.

Brin told the Verge that they don't nearly function as they do in the Project Glass promo video, admitting to the Verge, "right now you really just see it reboot."

He also declined to comment about the prototype's power source, but did reveal that the final version will connect to other devices. The final version will also need to go through RF testing to ensure that it is safe for users to wear for any length of time. Brin wouldn't say when these were coming to everyone else's faces, saying only, "Give us time."

    Yes, it will connect to other devices. If they can fit a computer into it, great... but if not, it's great if it's just a display device for the time being.

    haha, well, at least they can have it almost boot!

    I'm not criticizing, as I've only been programming for a hobby (sort of) for about a year, so I understand. Building blocks!
