PR Win: Basketball Teams Are Hyping Google Glass Now

Google Glass struggled to get off the ground in 2013, and there’s no doubt that the Wiredthis product will never appeal to the general public” article was terrible PR.

Google’s still going to push it, though—and this month Glass officially entered the sports world. We’re not sure who’s behind PR at the company (though Peter Himler gave us some hints with this 2010 blog post), but the Sacramento Kings‘ decision to showcase Glass is a big win. Here’s the preview:

Looks pretty cool with the ringside seats and all, though it’s hardly HD. It’s mostly successful in showing us that Glass does have some potential real world applications beyond making you look really weird.

Our proposal: Doggy Glass for the Animal Planet “Puppy Bowl”. Think about it, Google.
