Google shows off an incredible demo of Google Glass, live skydiving has never been so cool

Google show off Glass in a magical, revolutionary way

| Augmented Reality News | Posted: Jun 28, 2012 3:24 am

Google I/O 2012: Google co-founder Sergey Brin, voice included, took to the stage of the Moscone West and was to deliver a demo of Google Glass, which involved a bunch of testers in a Google+ hangout, all connected through their eyewear.

 

 

Did I mention they jump out of a plane? Oh, and land on the Mascone West building and deliver something to Brin? Yep. Brin adds "being able to share what you're seeing is amazing". The trick involved four skydivers sporting the Google Glass hardware, jumping out of a plane toward the Mascone West building. The video quality is not bad considering its all transmitting over Wi-Fi on various transmitters, to the plane, and the ground.

 

After they touched down, Google showed off how seamless video sharing can be, with a small crew of bikers performing flips off of a carefully-placed mount, and afterward two people took the Glass on a ride as they ran down the side of the Moscone Center. Yes, ran down the damn side of the building, with Glass on.

 

Personally, I thought it was incredible. It really shows off just how cool this tech can be, this truly could be Google's 'iPhone moment'.
