During an elaborate publicity stunt for the glasses at the Google I/O developers confab, a cyclist rides down the aisle wearing the computerized spectacles, which are filming the goings-on from his point of view. Various POV shots, including those culled from the glasses worn by a group of skydivers, were shown live on screen at the event, as the various parties converged on the Moscone convention center.

Here are a couple of those skydivers we talked about, as seen by another member of the Project Glass-wearing group. You can see the San Francisco Bay in the background, and in the foreground, lower left, you can see Brin looking up at the live footage on a large screen at S.F.'s Moscone convention center.
And here's what one of the Project Glass-wearing skydivers saw on the way down toward the roof of the Moscone Center In S.F., where Sergey Brin and the rest of the crowd at Google I/O was watching the footage projected on a large screen.
Another view of Brin with the San Francisco Bay in the background. You can watch the video of the dramatic publicity stunt here.
