He said the device can be inappropriate at times
Google's Eric Schmidt admitted that his company's
may not be appropriate in all situations, and that talking to them can even be a little "weird."
Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said that talking to Google Glass, the company's latest augmented-reality glasses, is "the weirdest thing" while speaking to Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government on Thursday.
"There are obviously places where Google Glasses are inappropriate," said Schmidt, referring to the fact that only those wearing the glasses can see presented information.
While it can be annoying to spend time with a person who keeps their face buried in their smartphone or seemingly talking to themselves via Bluetooth, Google Glass could be considered rude in common settings. For instance, two people could be engaging in conversation and making eye contact, but the Google Glass wearer could actually be looking at information presented on their glasses.
Talking out loud to Google Glass in certain settings could be rude and confusing to others, as well.
Google Glass is being offered to early adopters right now for a steep
price of $1,500
While Schmidt thinks Google Glass can be a bit weird, Google co-founder Sergey Brin feels
the exact opposite
. At the TED stage in February, Brin said that Google Glass was the way we're meant to react with other people.
"When we started Google 15 years ago, my vision was that information would come to you as you need it," said Brin. "You wouldn't have to search query at all."

No actually it carries the full weight of a man, minus one deposit.
