Athletes use Google glasses to make unique videos
The International Olympic Committee’s Young Reporters are creating content that could shape the way we see sports through video.
With the help of Google glasses reporters are producing content through the help of the athletes at the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games.
A group of Puerto Rican basketball players volunteered to use the glasses to show how to play 3-on-3 basketball. They were in awe over the glasses and what it can do.
The glasses produced video that put you literally as the athlete’s themselves. The view from their own eyes.
And what an amazing view it is. You can see the ball dribble, the look on the teammates face as they try to take away the ball.
A skater and a rollerblader also had a chance to use the Google glasses and created unique and amazing content easily.
He Xin a rollerblader couldn’t contain himself when he first tried the glasses on for the first time.
“This is amazing,” he said.
Another Chinese athlete gave his perspective on skating.
Those videos show the ease the athletes have at their sport and the frustrations that can come with messing up.
The different perspective could make reporting sports much more interesting in the future.
