Google CEO Larry Page Wears Project Glass to London Event

Google's CEO takes Project Glass for a test drive.

In early April, Google revealed that it was working on augmented reality glasses and that the specs were being tested by members of the Project Glass team. A week later, it emerged that it wasn't just the Project Glass team that were testing the glasses. Google's Sergey Brin was spotted wearing them out in public, too. Brin was seen at a charity event in the Bay Area wearing a pair of the glasses and was photographed by multiple people.

 

Fast forward more than a month and Brin's partner and Google CEO Larry Page has also been seen rocking Project Glass. TechRadar reports that Page showed up at the Google Zeitgeist event in London wearing the glasses and was more than happy to talk about the project.

"It's still in a bit of an early stage but I'm really excited to be able to have one. And to have it working. … It doesn't yet show me all of your names, but I'm really glad that you're all here," Page is quoted as telling the audience. Page then used the camera on the glasses to take a picture of the attendees and shared the photo with his colleagues.

    As long as he can direct Google to keep creating things like this then who the hell cares what his hair looks like, not like a new hair style will give him better ideas or make him better at his job.

    he is not directing google in a good way, he is screwing up google. It has being stated couple of times.

    Eric Schmidt was guiding google in a good way, we bunch of research, new services coming out continuously and free. This new guy don't care shit about research of benefit for somebody but himself.

    Nice presentation and I agree with much of what he said. What he says about trying challenging projects certainly is true if you have the funds, or are close to people with the funds to finance those projects. Wish he had touched on the subject of privacy.
