Here’s Sergey Brin Chillin’ on the 3 Train in a Pair of Google Glasses

No skydiving this time.

There have been several sightings of Googlers donning Project Glass in the wild, but it’s pretty rare to catch a glimpse of Google cofounder Sergey Brin just doing normal New York things. (Cofounders: they’re just like us!) Wearable computing enthusiast and hardware researcher Noah Zerkin had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mr. Brin on the downtown 3 train, and snapped a pic–perhaps so all his friends would believe him.

“Yeeeah… I just had a brief conversation with the most powerful man in the world. On the downtown 3 train. Nice guy,” he tweeted last night.

Look at that hat! Mr. Brin would look quite at home in any hip New York neighborhood, though he should probably be wary of the fact that someone could snatch that $1,500 prototype off his face at any moment. Welcome to New York!
