It’s one of the features of Google Glass — you can stream the video of people wearing the computer-in-your-eyewear “glasses.”
So what if you gave them to a player during warm-ups, a cheerleader, a sideline reporter and others at an NBA game?
We will find out Friday night as the Sacramento Kings host the Indiana Pacers with their Google Glass Game — some of the streaming images from the glasses will be shown on the jumbotron at Sleep Train Arena.The video above is from a test run the Kings did on Jan. 12, including having Derrick Williams and Rudy Gay wear them in warm-ups.
The entire process is powered by CrowdOptic, which according to a press release is “a software platform which analyzes the real-time Google Glass feeds and curates them by their subject matter and quality, exporting only the highest quality live footage to the arena scoreboard.” Not really sold this is the wave of the future, but it could be interesting for a night.
