Seething mass of testosterone and Google co-founder Sergey Brin has stated that smartphones are emasculating.

Speaking at the Technology, Education and Design TED conference series on the subject of Google Glasses and the future of Google, Brin let drop that he finds the fastest growing technology of the past decade to be "emasculating".

Seeing people - well, presumably just men - hunched over their smartphones, just looked wrong, said the tech titan. "Is this what you’re meant to do with your body?" he asked.

Brin's remedy for the manhood-stripping mobes, of course, was Google's own augmented reality glasses - Google Glass - which has tiny computers bolted onto its frame and leaves your hands free.

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?”
