Google's Sergey Brin rides the Subway wearing Project Glass

Noah Zerkin spotted Google co-founder Sergey Brin riding the New York downtown train yesterday and he was sporting a prototype of Google's much hyped Project Glass which is a research and development program to develop an augmented reality head-mounted display.

Glass will display information like a smartphone but be hands-free, interact with the Internet and be controlled by voice commands. Project Glass is being developed by Google X Lab, who are also working on self-driving cars. Below is an example of Glass may do in the future.
