Google's Sergey Brin Feels Google Glass is a Better Way to Interact with Technology

File this post under the category of "I've got to get one of these".  Sergey Brin, one of the founders of Google has been promoting a wearable system called Google Glass for a while now.  I've mentioned it here before and will probably continue to mention it as the device continues to make headlines & gets closer to being available to consumers.
Not a whole lot is known about the device other than it projects the image of a screen into the eye and it also has a camera.  There is some type of high speed data connection with it as well.
I'd love to have something like this instead of carting around a smartphone everywhere I go.
I laugh to myself that at business meetings & even business dinners, the first thing most people do is reach into a pocket or purse and place their phone on the table.
Personally I think something like Google Glass would be a lot less intrusive.
This past week, Brin was at TED talking about glass where he made this quote, "Is the future of connection just people walking around hunched up, looking down, rubbing a featureless piece of glass? In an intimate moment, he says, “It’s kind of emasculating. Is this what you’re meant to do with your body?”

Personally I'd prefer something other than a phone...
