While sports organizations look for new ways to deliver their games to audiences, the NBA's Sacramento Kings didn't have to look very far. In fact, they only had to look south to Silicon Valley.
The Kings announced that a select group of players, announcers, cheerleaders, and the Kings mascot, will be sportin' Google Glass during their upcoming game against the Indiana Pacers (ouch) on January 24. They won't wear it during the game, of course, but audiences will be given a unique view of the sidelines and the locker room.
CrowdOptic, the company piecing together the footage of the Glass game, hasn't announced how the footage will be shown quite yet, but it might be broadcasted online or on the jumbotron.
Is it too late to sneak this into the Super Bowl, Google?
Testing complete! Kings ready to Go Glass on 1/24 vs the Pacers. See the game from an entirely new perspective. http://t.co/Ec3OA6RCz2— Vivek Ranadivé (@Vivek) January 17, 2014
