Sergey Brin Refuses to Go Anywhere Without Google Glass

By: Josh Wolford - January 21, 2013

If you just quickly glanced at this, you may wonder why we are highlighting a photo of a middle-aged hipster on the subway. But if you look a bit closer you’ll realize that this dude is wearing some pretty slick glasses.

Glasses worth about $1,500, actually.

Yes, the image above shows Google’s Sergey Brin smiling for the camera, wearing a pair of Google Glass on the subway. The photo was snapped by Noah Zerkin, and posted to Twitter. “Yeeeah…I just had a brief conversation with the most powerful man in the world. On the downtown 3 train. Nice guy,” he wrote.

Of course, this isn’t the first time that Sergey Brin has been spotted rocking Google Glass out in public. He’s actually known for sporting his project pretty much everywhere: charity events, Google events, and now the subway.

Google just sent out invitations to Project Glass pre-orderers for a two-day hackathon event dubbed Glass Foundry. Those hackathons will take place on January 28th in San Francisco and on February 1st in New York City.

    Am I really to believe Sergey Brin uses public transport?
