Those in the NBA are big fans of the new tech that is Google Glass. The Sacramento Kings were the first of the NBA to incorporate the device. Well the Pacers are looking to incorporate the device while also looking to expand functionality of Glass during their games by expanding the amount of services that take advantage of it. Glass users will be able to view the game courtside regardless of where they sit. Texts can be sent to Glass users giving them directions and alerts letting them know when the team and this courtside experience is about to go live.
Roy Hibbert has been the biggest supporter of Glass for the Pacers, but there are others that are embracing the technology. While the NBA has been on team Android for a few years now, with Samsung being the supplier of tablets and other devices, the NBA is really pushing forward with experimenting with Glass. At some point refs may be wearing the device too. So while the device may not be that popular with the every day folk out there, it’s at least picking up traction in the sports world. Of course, having a fat bank account might help with that too. You can check out Roy Hibbert and Glass in action after the break.
