Google engineer Sebastian Thrun has posted an image to his Google+ page that most likely couldn't have been taken with anything but Project Glass.

A few weeks ago, we saw what was probably the first public image taken with Google's Project Glass augmented reality glasses — the photo was taken by Project Glass researcher Sebastian Thrun during an interview with Charlie Rose. Since then, Thrun has posted more images to his Google+ page, but one that went up a few days ago most likely couldn't have been taken with anything but Project Glass (see above). While we don't yet know how useful Google's AR glasses will be in reality, Thrun's photo is a good example of the kinds of unique shots you can get with a hands-free camera. We're still a long way off from Project Glass being a shipping product (or even seeing its full capabilities tested), but we're enjoying seeing Google's employees taking them out and about — even though it badly makes us wish Google had more Project Glass capabilities to show off.
