Google Co-Founder Caught Testing Project Glass Eyewear

Google Co-Founder Sergey Brin Sports the New Google Glasses at Dinner in the Dark, a Benefit for the Foundation Fighting Blindness -- San Francisco, CA

The Internet has been buzzing over the prospect of Google’s Project Glass. It’s mainly due to the fact that the glasses make people look like an extra from the set of ‘Back to the Future Part II.’

Now it seems that Google has been officially testing the prototype in the field with some of their biggest names in the beta testing chair.

Sergey Brin, one of Google’s co-founders, was spotted by tech journalists at a charity event wearing what appears to be a very early prototype of the new device.

Engadget also reports that he’s not the only bigwig at Google to get an advanced preview of what the world would look like through Google’s eyes. One reporter learned that Google executive Vic Gundotra also has a prototype that they’re testing out for the project.

The reporter wasn’t able to get a view of the glasses through his own eyes. He did note that he saw a “blueish lighting flashing on Brin’s eyes.” Who knows what that could mean? All we know is we’re resisting the urge to make a very bad “Bluetooth” pun at the moment.
