NFL's Sam Bradford and Google Glass

by Lillie-Beth Brinkman Published: July 16, 2013

Sam Bradford is featured wearing Google Glass in this new ESPN video demonstrating the device’s potential in the NFL.

In it, ESPN’s Katie Linendoll takes two sets of Google Glass to a St. Louis Rams practice and shows quarterback Bradford throwing a pass to wide receiver Tavon Austin. Both are wearing Glass as eyeglasses and recording video while throwing and catching. The video shows the perspective of both players.

As seen in the video, both Brandford and Austin, as well as Rams’ General Manager Les Snead note the potential in the device, whether it’s used to give teams a view of what is going on on the field during practice from different points of view or to give fans a view of what a quarterback or another player sees during a game.

That’s one thing I’ve noticed with nearly everyone I’ve talked to about Google Glass — they see all kinds of potential in using a wearable eyeglass/smart phone-like device, no matter what their field of work is.

Check it out. Thanks to my colleague Jay Marks in our business department for sending this to my attention.
