Gaming Through Google Glasses, Could It Look Like This?

YouTube Preview Image

If you had a pair of the new Android-powered glasses from Google’s “Project Glass,” could you imagine what gaming would be like through them? This is obviously a look waaaaaay into the future, but we thought it was at least fun enough to share. Think real-world Battlefield mashed-up with that original Project Glass commercial.

    Awesome! wait this a lot haha!

  • Lane252

    yea maybe in 20 yrs it could 

  • Bob Martin

    this should be the kind of technology in the next playstation and xbox systems

  • Androidandwp7equalsPower

    Cool, but what happens if a guy with a real gun comes to you, but you think its part of the game and ignore it.

  • Derek

    I doubt playing games will be the most popular application of this technology. At least initially, these will be porn glasses.

  • trumpet444

    ….until a guy walks up to you with a real gun

  • Arameth324

    pretty wild thought, but what happens when the homeless people are hanging out in there and you pull out your knife to sneak up, and oops its not part of the game… 

  • Steve Schneider

    yeah and my name is ted murphy

  • Sjschwar

    nice Oakley product placement

  • PanicsWhenUbered

    By the year 2000, we’ll all have flying cars.

    • Noyfb

      and jet packs

  • turdbogls

    this is pretty cool, but could you imagine playing other stuff.

    think about throwing TD passes to Jerry Rice, taking a hocky puck to the face from Gretzky (sp?) or going one on one with Jordan…..pretty Bad ass if you ask me.

    I do think racing would be a little difficult though :P

  • Scott

    THAT WOULD BE EPIC!!!!!!!!!!

    Something like this could work, but you would need full cover glasses, not what google demoed. There are things like respawning that could make this not quite work. Plus, considering all the running and jumping that I see in MW3, people would get tired quick and make for some crappy MP gameplay.

      You could implement paintball rules and have no respawning allowed, (ala Search and Destroy) or there could be a rule where “dead” people would have to go back across the map to a “spawn point”. Their “dead” status would be evident to other players through the HUD using tech similar to lase tag.

      As for getting tired, heh… couch potatoes need not apply. I’d play this in a heartbeat. Speaking of heartbeat, Imagine real-life heartbeat sensors on the guns to see around corners and behind walls?? Bananas.

      Now, about that knife to the throat business. How would that work? Hmmm.

    • LiterofCola

      Makes for easy kills!

  • kretz7

    Kids would have to start playing outside again???

  • Terrance Steiner

    Wow.  It is like real life paintball…oh wait, paintball is real life paintball.

    • LiterofCola

      Yeah, but without the stupid protective padding

      • Josh Groff

        And paint, and actually fun. Oh, and you can play by yourself as well. :)

      • Adam Elghor

        psh…who wears padding???

  • Mikel61101

    i dunno I think it would be pretty slick…

  • Josh Groff

    A game that could finally work with true physical reflexes, I’d be totally game.

    • Terrance Steiner

      You mean like paintball, basketball, baseball, football, hockey and soccer?

      • LiterofCola

        Yeah true, but can you run around and virtually shoot bad guys in sports? 

        • Anthony Armando

          you dont know what paintball is i take it?

          • http://www.naskaras.com/ Thanassi Karageorgiou

            its like sissy version of paintball without the paint / pain…

            or

            a badass version of laser tag. depending on how you look at it.

          • Josh Groff

            Badass laser tag, of course.

            Paintball is like let’s cause pain for fun, yeah… There’s a reason more people play CoD than paintball, and I’ll let you figure out why.

          • Anthony Armando

            because americans are generally lazy wussies with overprotective parents?

            case in point, teenagers wearing helmets when they are just riding their bike to a friends house or school, not doing stunts.

          • Josh Groff

            Yes, because only lazy Americans play CoD, you must be quite the genius.

          • LiterofCola

            Yeah, but you don’t have don the protective padding, buy expensive paintball guns and round up 5 peeps that actually are into paintball at any given time to play.

          • Anthony Armando

            while i will concede the expense point, i will point out that there are paintball clubs all around the nation which you can join which hold regular competitions.

        • Josh Groff

          This ^

          Google glasses = soccer with zombies!!!

          Perfect for gym class or hanging out with friends.

      • Josh Groff

        I mean a game, not sports. I do not consider sports as games, but do occasionally enjoy some soccer. :)

  • Aaa

    Ha interesting. However, *nitpick* an explosion wouldn’t knock you down on the ground if it were just a holographic projection. 

  • http://www.industrializeme.com/ Dan

    Hmmm. You know that homeless person that stands on the corner talking to himself and fighting the invisible opponent…..yeah, its kinda like that to others that see you using these glasses. #Retarded

    • Josh Groff

      I’m perfectly fine with other people thinking I look like a moron, if they confront me about it, I’ll act as if nothing unusual happened and make them look like an ass. ;)

      I could also just prove my sanity and intelligence through a few minutes of conversation and go back to shooting invisible people with invisible machine guns.

      Somehow that reminds me of this XKCD comic.

    worst music ever

  • http://twitter.com/kepley thundercleese

    I’d play it in the bathroom.. maybe.

  • MKader17

    So I didn’t realize you didn’t need your own gun for the game and I went around shooting what I thought was bad guys and now I’m in jail…

    • http://meatcastle.com/ bwbloom

      Sure, all the parents will be up in arms over this kind of technology makes it to the market.

      It will be the classic “blurring the line between video game violence and real world violence” argument we always see.

      Jeez mom and dad, I know the difference between video games and the real world. In the real world you do not get extra points for headshots.

      • Lacockanostra

        No respawning

        • http://www.facebook.com/TJHRULZ tjhrulz

          You can do it just it is laggy, it took jesus 3 days to respawn

          • Steve Schneider

            Haha, he didn’t really die he was just down to 2hp, and no mana for heals.

  • Jim

    WHOA!! I think you would fall on your face and destory your glasses with this haha

  • Instant_lunch

    Uhhhh…

  • Gian

    that would be dope, but you would look like a complete idiot if people were watching you play in public.
