Actor George Takei has launched a new technology-based webseries.

Takei's Take premiered on Tuesday (17Sep13) and featured the former Star Trek star demonstrating the benefits of Google Glass, a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display.

He tells People.com, "What we are doing here with Takei's Take is sharing the new technological developments, entertainingly, those developments that can enrich one's life and expand our potential.

"Having worked on Star Trek and met some fantastic sci-fi writers and their imagination, projecting out to what we might have, not only technologically but societally, in the future."

The 76 year old hopes the webseries, produced by the American Association of Retired Persons (Aarp), appeals to his generation.

He continues, "My sister is one of those technophobic people. She doesn't even have a computer. And I've been working on her."
