UNC Basketball Player Straps on Google Glass for WarmupsBy: Josh Wolford - February 20, 2014
Though you’re unlikely to see college or professional athletes sporting Google Glass during actual games, plenty of them are showing what it’s like to really be in the moment, POV style, through Google Glass.
Here’s another example of just how cool Google Glass could be and what an asset it can be for POV documentation (as long as we get past the Glassholes stage).
Cool, right? That’s UNC Senior Wade Moody behind the specs.
Google recently came out with a “dos and don’ts” list for Glass, and had this to say about wearing the glasses during contact activity:
“Don’t rock glass while doing high-impact sports. Glass is a piece of technology, so use common sense. Water skiing, bull riding or cage fighting with Glass are probably not good ideas.”
I guess basketball is ok.
Of course, the Tar Heel isn’t the first athlete to get their hands on a pair of Google Glass. The Sacramento Kings are starting to put the tech on their players, mascots, and dancers. We’ve also seen NFL punters and champion tennis players sport Google Glass in recent months.
