Google Glass has the potential to be one scary piece of wearable technology, from facial recognition issues to the possibility of taking photos anywhere at anytime.
But this? This is the future, baby.
App designer Aaron Draczynski has released a video for a new Google Glass app he has named “Blue.” Simply put, Blue is the ballpark companion you always wish you had on you from the beginning.
Draczynski describes Blue on his website:
“Blue uses geolocation to figure out which ballpark you’re sitting in. It knows who’s playing and automatically starts presenting data to you as the game unfolds — stats for every player and pitch, even play-by-play descriptions. Watch a pitch fly by, then Blue will tell you its speed and type. Wondering what call the umpire just made or why that runner got sent back to first base? Blue will let you know.”
He even tested in a few games from the stands at AT&T Park in San Francisco, the home of the baseball Giants. The app will also continue updating you if you leave your seat, say, for a bathroom break or to grab a hot dog. That’s ridiculously convenient.
This baseball fan is impressed. What do you guys think?
