Trending: Jeff Bezos and other investors raise $200 million for vertical farming startup Plenty

Google co-founder Sergey Brin caused a stir at an event in San Francisco last night, sporting a prototype of the company’s “Project Glass” augmented reality glasses, which were just unveiled by the company earlier this week.

Apart from proving that the devices are real, Brin’s move gave a sense for what the glasses would actually look like on people in real-world settings, as you can see in the photo above by Thomas Hawk, via Flickr.

As shown in Google’s demo video, the glasses will overlay interactive graphics on top of the real world, delivering information and messages, providing real-time directions, finding nearby friends, snapping pictures, and letting people interact with the device using voice commands.

But here’s our question. Seeing what they look like in the wild, and keeping in mind that the project is still in the prototype phase, would you wear these things in public? Vote in our poll below.
