Google Glass is the latest soon-to-be world dominating piece of technology from our friends at Google. It’s computer glasses, basically. Because I don’t understand technology, I went to Wikipedia for some information. Google Glass is a “wearable computer” that is planned to become the world’s first “mass-market ubiquitous computer” which sounds simultaneously horrifying and pretty awesome. From what I’ve gathered it sounds like a smartphone and a laptop on your face. The future. It’s also impossible to wear without looking totally ridiculous.
Some wonderful gentleman had the bright idea to wear this thing while playing hockey and the result was actually pretty dang cool, if I do say so myself. The video shows a first person perspective of a hockey player from an angle that, to my knowledge, has never been accurately captured before. It also gives me a little bit of motion sickness.
I’m not sure how they can strap this thing on an NHL player without it getting smashed to bits but, if they can figure it out, wouldn’t you like to see what Sidney Crosby sees, for example? We just need a HUD on this sucker to make life look even more like a video game.
Next step: save points in real life. Make it happen, Google.
