A little situation of 'why him and not me', Google co-founder Sergey Brin was testing out their Project Glass augmented reality HUD out in public. He was spotted sporting the glasses at a Dining in the Dark charity event for the Foundation Fighting Blindness.

Robert Scoble and Thomas Hawk were lucky enough to be at the same dinner, where they spotted Sergey wearing the glasses. Sergey explained that the glasses were a prototype, where they could see a "bluish light" flashing off his right eyeball. Scoble guesses the light meant that his Google+ profile was pulled up on Sergey's glasses, thanks to its augmented reality and always-on Internet connection.

 

He continued saying that most people around them had no idea that the glasses are actually different to normal specs. All I can say is, I want them and I want them now. So jealous.
