Mayor Reed tests out Google Glass, which makes him ‘feel like iRobot’

Maybe he should call former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for some tips?

Mayor Kasim Reed took Google Glass for a test ride this morning and, based on one photo, looks either extremely confused or ready for world domination. However, it does make him feel like iRobot!

Reed accepted the 2013 Google eCity award, an honor the company presents to the strongest online business community in each state, on Atlanta’s behalf at Paschal’s Restaurant. During the event, spokeswoman Anne Torres shared a photo of the mayor testing out Google’s futuristic eyewear:

“I feel like iRobot”- @KasimReed testing out @googleglass. Amazing.

We’re not exactly sure what he’s doing with the computer eyewear. Maybe he’s setting up a new Vine account, getting updates about the next round of stadium talks, or ordering some of those jumbo-sized balloons located behind him for his City Hall office.

But judging by the photo, he’s taking it very seriously. Maybe he should call former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who used his headset to play with George the turtle at a Peoria zoo, for some tips. No word yet on whether he’ll permanently rock the lenses moving forward.
