While Google Glass is slowly being rolled out to the average Joe after months of rigorous testing and probing, plenty of questions about the product remain unanswered. Starting from the security concerns around the device to the battery life and real life use, the Glass, currently is a very expensive form of tech fashion accessory. It may still be the next big thing in the wearables space, but the utility currently is fairly limited.
However, one place where a head mounted camera display can be extremely useful is livestreaming. So far, most of the livestream is done via static cameras that are placed or mounted at a scene. But, what if you want to livestream an adventure? While few options such as Go Pro exist, the rather simple setup of the Google Glass certainly finds its application here. Keeping this in mind, the popular livestreaming site, Livelens has made its application for Google Glass available to download. You simply have to download the application from it’s webpage here and follow the instructions after connecting your Glass to the Mac to run it.
The rather uninspiring battery life of the Glass may still be a hinderance, but the option to directly stream the scene that your eye is catching is certainly interesting. The application so far was available on Android and iOS. You do get plenty of Social Sharing options such as liking and commenting on videos. You can also share the videos directly to your Facebook feed and activate an option of monetisation. It is apps like Livelens, that can take liveblogging using Google Glass to a completely new level and would certainly be interesting to see how other developers react and develop apps for Glass to facilitate this.
