Google CEO Larry Page Wears Project Glass to London Event

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.
