Google Glass Journalism


“Tonight, I was testing out the extended video recording option with Google Glass on the Boardwalk of Wildwood, New Jersey. I walked right into the tail end of a fight happening on Jersey Shore boardwalk and filmed the first arrest through the lens of my Google Glass.” 1

“More notable than the video itself is the ease at which it was captured without the knowledge of those in the middle of the melee.”

“His (Barrett’s) footage foreshadows the rapidly approaching future where everything can be filmed serendipitously by folks wearing devices like Google Glass without the knowledge of the parties involved.” 2

- Christophe Gevrey
