Google Glass App Idea

post #1 of 11

Have a smartphone camera beam what you're doing to a screen on GG. This way you can see yourself without moving your head say like when you're doing mirror work. GG is a realtime "mirror".

You could have a steady head option that draws a red circle around your head at setup and make a swing w/o the ball to see how good you're keeping it steady.

It's basically a golf video selfie!

They have those. It's a video feed looped to a small TV (or iPad) near the ball.

 

A friend of mine uses Skype to video chat with himself. His one iPhone "films" him from whatever angle he wants, then his iPad is near his ball so he can see what he's doing.

 

It's a pretty great way to practice, eh @cedrictheo ? :)

That's clever. If I didn't have an Android tablet I'd try that. Hmmmm. iPad Mini buy me a1_smile.gif

But the fact that it's on GG and you don't have to move your head to see yourself - that's pretty advantageous no?

I think it would be more distracting than anything. What's better than keeping your eyes down toward the ball? With GG, you could look anywhere, and you have to constantly change focal distance.

Giving away all my secrets @iacas :))... Skype is great for mirror work, I never hit balls using it. More for checking positions/alignments and doing slow motion work.

… but you could. :)

 

Make a few backswings (or whatever), then chip a ball. Repeat as necessary.

It's still $1800. I figure it might come down a bit, but not super cheap.

 

Good idea, though.

 

There are a few sports applications that some people are looking into. "Fitness APP"

Check out "Golfsight" with swingbyte.

See, this is the sort of thing The Dan Plan should be producing. :-P

Google Glass is just so expensive!

What if you could integrate protracer into google glass and see the ball trail through the glasses in real-time?

That would be cool.
