What Happens When You Put Google Glass on a Baby?

By , video by Chris Angelini and Lucas Angelini - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 16 comments

The wonders of Google Glass allowing us to relive our formative years.

Toddler Wears Google Glass

One of the things Google Glass offers is great POV video. Sure, it's exciting to tag along on a sky dive, or take a ride with our own Chris Angelini as he dines at Taco Bell, but one of the things we really, really wanted to do with Google Glass was put it on a baby. A baby or a dog. In the absence of a dog, we went with a baby.

We mostly can't remember what it was like to be a tiny little person, so we figured it might be fun to see what a toddler sees. The star of our video is Lucas, Chris' son. He helped us out in our quest to find out what life looks like through the eyes of a small child. The answer to this question is 'cabinets.' When you're that small, you see a lot of cabinets and legs.

On a more serious note, little Lucas also noticed that Glass runs quite hot when it's recording video. Good catch, Lucas!

Stay tuned for Chris' more in-depth take on Google Glass later tonight!

    I highly enjoyed this cute video, thanks. It would definitely be interesting to throw them on a dog too.

    That's actually pretty interesting, its strange to have the perspective of ordinary things shifted.

    oddly, I would think the focus of the dog compared to a baby wearing these would be very similar, food, person, food, person, play thing, other person, more play.

    A baby is a human that can't walk, talk, or really do much of anything (newborn to 1 year) so seeing the title gave me a completely different impression of what to expect. A toddler, on the other hand, is a very different creature.

    I laughed so much when I watched this the first time. It's so surreal!

    Kinda risky. Has there been any study on the effects of bone conduction on someone whose skull has not fused?

    Video is nice. Loved it. But will Google Glass make a difference when you compare it with Go Pro HD 3 or Song Action Camera, in this aspect (POV).
