Google’s Sergey Brin hopes to launch Project Glass sometime next year

It’s no secret anymore that Google is working on augmented-reality glasses known as Project Glass. At the moment, the glasses are in their prototype stage and are being tested out by Google employees. Recently, Google co-founder Sergey Brin went on the Gavin Newsom show where he talked about the prototype glasses and even let the California Lieutenant Governor try them on.

In the video, Brin lets Newsom try on the glasses after letting Newsom know that he just took a picture of him. Although Brin doesn’t say exactly how he was able to take the picture, we do see him using his fingers on the side input pad to cycle through the pictures that were taken.

In an interview with Wired Magazine, Newsom said that the headset felt incredibily light, comfortable, and inconspicuous on his head. “You can easily forget you have them on, and sense the capacity of use in the future,” said Newsom.

Newsom also said that the image was remarkably clear and that he found the display to be of high quality.

Brin says that Project Glass has been in production for the past 2-3 years and that he hopes to have it available for the public sometime next year. The full interview of is set to air on Current TV on June 1 at 8PM Pacific Time.
