Google Glass at the World Junior Championships

This week, I was at the IAAF World Juniors, road testing Google Glass as a reporting tool. It was especially cool to compare stories with World Champion Ato Boldon, also a Glass owner. The young athletes at the competition were so keen to try out Glass after the media training we gave. Part of my message to them was to become early adopters, so they don't get left behind. We are witnessing a new era of digital interactions and wearable technology prototypes, like Google Glass, are just the beginning. Here is a short video showing how the athletes got on trying Google Glass for the first time.
