The tech boss said he hopes the new Google glasses will allow once more for "natural" human interaction.

In what is described as "an intimate moment" by the TED blog, Brin relates his worries about people's addiction to smartphone. “Is this the way you’re meant to interact with other people? It’s kind of emasculating. Is this what you’re meant to do with your body?”
