Here Are What the Google Glass Prototypes Looked Like

Wearing Google Glass might make you look weird but it's certainly a lot better than any of the prototypes that Google first tried out. Google Project Glass Staff Hardware Engineer Jean Wang showed off a slide revealing the earliest prototypes of Glass and they're a lot bulkier with open ribbons, chips, gigantic cameras and more. You'd look like a total robot wearing these.

Wang also revealed some of the first steps in creating Glass, which was not unlike to strapping cellphones to the side of your face and using literal helmet cams to get the same effect. Gotta love getting a behind the scenes look on what the future (hilarious how not futuristic it looks, though).
