John Dingell Google-Glasses Himself

Congress’s longest-serving member, Rep. John D. Dingell, D-Mich., can now find his favorite Chinese restaurant using only a pair of glasses.

Google stopped by Dingell’s office three weeks ago to show the 29-term congressman one of its newest products, Google Glass. Dingell, who turned 87 today, posted a video of his Glass experience on his Facebook page, saying near the end of the 55-second video, “This is quite a machine.”

Google, which has an office in the congressman’s district in Ann Arbor, Mich., launched Google Glass last June at Google I/O 2012, using skydivers and other extreme sport athletes to showcase the product’s capabilities.
