Google CEO Larry Page says he feels like he's living the future every time he wears Glass.

On a conference call following Google's second quarter earnings, Page said:

I think certainly over the long term, we're going to have new kinds of devices and ways of interacting with computing and the Internet. We're obviously excited about Google Glass. And new ways of interacting with hardware and new types of hardware. With any technological change you probably overestimate the short-term and underestimate the long-term. So I think our -- we're really excited about making those investments and making sure we're positioned to the future. That's why I love using Glass because I feel like every time I'm using Glass I'm living that future, that's really, really exciting to me.

The big question here is whether Page is on target.

For instance, I haven't picked up my Google Glass in weeks. The future gives me a bit of a headache. The future---assuming Glass is the future---runs a bit hot on my right temple sometimes. The software is improving, but Glass is a work in progress.

Robotic cars feel more like the future from Google. Google Glass? The jury is out. Page is obviously on board though.
