Think of a mobile app where players can accept invitations, see the game progress and chat with each other. Google Glass would be used to help a player start the race, invite friends and track progress.

The web platform has extended capabilities of personal account management,friend activities tracking, and watching stream videos.

The main idea of the Experiment was to show how Google Glass can turn sports into a real-life digital game, bringing together mobile, web, Google Glass and personal interaction.

To showcase the concept features and the entire experience, we designed a promotional website and a thrilling interactive video. The site allows anyone with a microphone to operate video via simple voice commands and simulate the Google Glass experience.

Together with our patner VGNC, we filmed a dynamic video that, with the help of Web Speech API, was later transformed into an interactive experiment emulating the work of Google Glass on the web.

Using a microphone, users could try simple voice commands to operate the video.

#Google_Glass
When we started experimenting, we had limited access to Google Glass itself, so it was decided to install Google Glass UI on the Nexus 7 tablet. Once we obtained a real device, things became even more intriguing. We faced new challenges regarding short battery life, Google Glass heating, and UI patterns. However, all these components helped us to shape the vision of the actual application.

#Web_Speech_API
Using Web Speech API for voice control of the video was an exciting idea, nevertheless, Web Speech API didn't recognize long phrases.We shorted all phrases to “OK Glass...” and it was almost always recognized, and if it wasn’t, we implemented a little trick so that people wouldn’t get discouraged. If they say “OK Glass” twice and it doesn’t recognize their speech, the third time they can say anything – it will automatically get through.
