Google founder snapped wearing augmented reality glasses

Google co-founder Sergey Brin has been photographed wearing the company’s much talked about Project Glass Augmented Reality specs.

Confirming they are very much the real deal, Brin posed for pictures with blogger Robert Scoble, at a charity dinner for, somewhat ironically, the Foundation Fighting Blindness.

Brin was quick to inform Scoble that the glasses were very much a prototype, though Scoble said he saw a blue light flash to the right of Brin’s eye which he deemed to be Brin reading his Google+ profile. We assume he was joking.

Prototype or not, with Brin so publicly showcasing the Project Glass specs, reports of their arrival before the year’s out might not be as far-fetched as some claimed.

When Google first announced the Project Glass project it did so with a promotional video demonstrating how the eyewear could "improve" your day-to-day life.

Pocket-lint has since stumbled across another version of the same video, albeit with what might prove to be an altogether more realistic account of what we can expect.

Less augmented reality, more ADmented reality.
