Google’s Sergey Brin has been spotted by a guy on the New York Metro. Interestingly he was wearing Google Glass. A guy named Noah Zerkin has tweeted that he saw Sergey Brin with most awaited Google product i.e Google Glass. Noah Zerkin managed to take a picture of Google co-founder in the subway. Zerkin posted a tweet on Twitter describing the encounter with Sergey Brin stating : “Yeeeah … I just had a brief conversation with the most powerful man in the world. On the downtown 3 train. Nice guy.”
The photo posted by Zerkin has become viral. It has been posted on numerous tech news articles and the picture has also been retweeted many times. The picture is an indication of how we might travel and look like a few years down the road if Google glass becomes a success. The glasses worn by Brin in the picture appear similar to other glasses unless you have a closer look at these.
The first peek into Google Glass was given in this YouTube video by Google earlier this year. This tech gadget apparently has most of the qualities found in today’s smartphones. The real difference lies in the fact that the data is seen on the tiny screen on the glasses. Zerkin was too excited and could not question Brin about what he was up to. “Come to think of it, perhaps I should’ve mentioned my projects to Mr. Brin,” Zerkin again tweeted. “Or given him my card. Derp.” However, the question still remains that what a tech billionaire was doing travelling on the subway.
