Yale Quarterback Uses Google Glass To Give First-Person View Of Game (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A digital creative agency in New Haven, Conn. used Google Glass to show what it's like to play a game of football as a Yale University quarterback.

Digital Surgeons got one of the 8,000 pairs of Google Glass as part of the tech giant's "Explorer" program, the New Haven Register reports. They connected with Yale and arranged to have the senior Henry Furman wear a pair during Tuesday's practice.Yale-New Haven Hospital also received a Google Glass, the Hartford Courant reports, and has been using it in their simulation centers to explore training possibilities.

Elsewhere, students at a number of film schools are trying out Google Glass in filmmaking to offer new angles.

As far as the football program at Yale goes, Digital Surgeons' David Salinas hopes Google Glass could help better connect fans.

"We thought how cool would it be to do a Google Hangout and bring the fans into the game," Salinas told the Register. "Google said explore and that’s what we’re here to do. We think it’s the perfect pair for Yale’s culture, intelligence and athletics."
