Yale Experimenting with Google Glass

Yale University is set to rent out Google Glass devices through its Bass Library in the fall. The program is a partnership between the Instructional Technology Group, the Student Technology Collaboration, and the library.

Students and faculty are being asked to propose fall-semester research and teaching projects using the device. Library staff is working on ways to use the devices, such as assisting handicapped library patrons and as a scanner to fill student requests from the book stacks.

Google Glass caught the attention of the university last fall when Henry Furman, a senior quarterback on the football team, wore the device during a team practice. The feed Furman recorded was turned into a video that gives fans a quarterback’s perspective of the game.
