Documentary filmmaker Chris Barrett made major headlines several weeks ago when he captured the first arrest using Google Glass — a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display currently being researched and developed under Project Glass by Google, meaning it isn’t currently available to the masses.
Barrett allowed Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan wear Glass during the band’s recent performance at MetLife Stadium on July 27th, allowing the viewer to see a first person perspective of playing in front of a sold out crowd of thousands. Glass shows Bryan’s walk towards the stage from the dressing room and his hair dropping into his line of view, but it’s nearly impossible to hear what song Bon Jovi is performing, though Mashable reports it was during “Wanted Dead Or Alive.”
Watch the video below:
“Glass and wearable-technology is an example of another step in consumer-facing innovation that will change how we share the music experience with our fans in the future,” Bryan said in a statement to Mashable. “This is relatively uncharted territory for the quick-moving developer community and I am excited to see what is created.”
Barrett believes Glass will be used by more musicians in the future, depending on certain changes: the ability to feed into a professional audio feed, a sleeker style and, of course, a revenue model so bands can turn a profit from streaming footage or capturing video of their live performances.
