Cool video here. For you that haven't heard about these glasses it's basically a pair of glasses with a camera on it. You can tell the glasses to record or download what someone else is seeing. Bradford and Austin put these to use on the field and it is really cool to see. It's Bradford throwing a couple passes. The rams are trying to see if this can help them. For us as fans, it would be cool to see the plays through a players perspective. As for the players it would help study and see where they are looking during plays. Also I think Bradford might have checked that girl out, might be awkward once he sits down to see the footage with her lol what do you think of this? Could it really help us out?

Also, there are many links but this one had the only working video for my phone

Very interesting...I think this won't be the last we hear of this technology. Obviously the camera can't look awkward like it did in this video...but if they were to make it smaller and adapt it to the helmet I could see this getting a lot of use. Bradford's view looked pretty lame when he was just throwing a pass, but how freakin' cool would it look during a game when he hikes the ball with 4-7 defenders coming for his head? THAT is what will put this on the map, and I can see someone like Fox or CBS or ESPN trying to buy rights to the product and use it for their replay.

And now the obvious question....what about using this for baseball???

I agree it's amazing how many things could be done with this. Snead also pointed out In the video that he can see something like this on helmets. As for the Bradford view.. Very lame lol tavons was a bit cooler just seeing how quick the ball gets there.

Now baseball might be cool but I think hockey would be cool too. And also easier since more than half already wear pretty visors

There are limitless possibilities with this technology. Imagine the next play being presented on that little screen instead of being called through a mic. This will also allow the offensive coaches to see what Bradford sees. It could really help him with his progressions.

I hope the NFL allows this in the near future and the Rams are the pioneers of this potential game-breaking device.

They already did this last year with Amendola. He had a helmet cam. I would love for more players to use them so so we can see exactly what they are going up against. I would like to see it during games... like on a big play replay just whip it out every now and then.
