Sergey Brin Drops in on the Google+ Photographer’s Conference

BL News

If you haven’t seen in yet, Google’s working on magic glasses.

Project Glass is something Google has in the oven that brings computing to users in a very new and novel way – through eyeglasses. One component of this tech is a camera embedded in the device that gives new meaning to the words “What you see is what you get.”

Project Glass Technical Lead Max Braun came on stage and gave a short talk and demo, and then surprised everyone by introducing Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Sergey came on stage and spoke a bit about Project Glass, which he described as “not in beta, or alpha, or anything,” just an idea with some prototypes in various stages of working.

We were in the presentation, and got some shots of Max and Sergey on-stage.
