Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Google's Sergey Brin previewing new 'Google Glasses'; England U-21 goalkeeper Ben Amos wearing Google-cam while balls are kicked at him during practice. The mind reels at the possibilities of this!; Wait until iJustine gets a pair of these!; @iJustine

England video: England U-21 goalkeeper Ben Amos wears The FA TV's Goggle-cam during a crossing training session. Uploaded September 8, 2012. http://youtu.be/egOtUmoE7Mo

This awesome video of England U-21 and Hull City goalie Ben Amos wearing Google-cam glasses while soccer balls are flying towards him during practice causes the mind to reel at the myriad possibilities of this, both training and entertainment!

(Or, in the hand of blogger iJustine, priceless. I'd be willing to bet that there's already someone at Google HQ in Mountain View trying to figure out how they can speed-up the process so that Justine Ezarik can get a pair in her hands -and on her oh-so cute face- and start evangelizing the product in her usual original and amusing ways via videos that capture the eyeballs of lots of early adaptors.) 

Hypothetically, in its simplest form, at a minimum, you could equip a striker wearing one pair of Google-cam glasses on a breakaway and a goalie wearing a pair moving out to block and you could see both points-of-views via a split-screen on TV, during a quick replay following a shot on goal, or via a sub-channel like what NASCAR does on DirecTV with driver-cam showing the view of individual drivers.

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
