We sure are right in the middle of the technology age, aren’t we?
Google has loaned three pairs of its new product Google Glass to film schools Cal Arts, USC, RISD, UCLA and AFI in an attempt to have students familiarize themselves with the revolutionary device, reports Hollywood Reporter.
Personally, I believe that anything Google creates is pure gold. I doubt the glasses/computer hybrid is any different.
Google Glass is a voice activated and partially hands-free head mounted display that offers many of the features Google normally offers on its website. You can check your mail, see if it’s raining today, consult a map if you are lost, read the news. Fun stuff, fun stuff.
Want to take a picture? Well then, tell Glass to take a picture and it will. You won’t even have to aim your shot – simply look at where you want to capture a photo and the device will do the rest.
Marketing director Ed Sanders believes that, in particular, filmmakers are hyped for Google Glass. Specifically its ability to film documentaries and portray ‘action-based storytelling.’
Google Glass film making would kind of be like a less extreme version of the head-mounted GoPro.
