Re: Google Glasses taping - any idea ?

also, you'd have to hold your head really still, it would seem, else you'll have a pretty unwatchable video.

as far as the audio, though... an iPhone5 does an amazing job capturing audio for a cell phone, even standing in front of the FOH stacks... so maybe the Google Glass thing will have tech like that built-in as well..
I recorded part of a show last week standing in an extremely loud area where the audio should have been trashed.. and it was clear as a bell. No idea how they do that, but it was surprisingly good.
I agree with this last bit. I've used an iPhone 4 for taping a few times and it works out quite good

To enforce copyright laws is to prevent people from making peaceful use of the information they possess. If one has acquired the information legitimately it is a violation of freedom of speech to prevent one from using it, reproducing it, trading it.

Copyright laws extort from the public a reward enormously in excess of the labor measure of an entertainers' services, making them, in essence, discriminatory against anyone paid a single time for a job. The only way there will ever be balance is when we are either all paid ad infinitum for work we did years ago, or when they are not. Until then I will fight for the freedom of information by challenging copyright law every chance I get. Join the Pirate Party and help make a difference.
