Google's Sergey Brin recently sat down with California's lieutenant governor Gavin Newsom to give a quick demo of Google Glass, the company's augmented reality glasses project. Sergey surprised Newsom by snapping a photo of him while sitting across the room and said that, while Project Glass has been in development for about two or three years, he has only been a large part of the project for the past year or so.

Newsom asked Brin when the public will be able to get its hands on the glasses. "I have some hopes to maybe get it out sometime next year," Brin replied. That contradicts reports that the glasses would go on sale this year, but at least we know Google is hoping to get them out as soon as possible.
