If you could experience the world through the eyes of another person for a minute, whose life would you pick? A graffiti artist? A Teppanyaki chef? A Barista? An Olympic champion? A Basketball player? A 5 year old?
It’s the eleventh week of the class, and we’re well on our way to building a cool app (come to our meetup on 18th November to know what it is and how it works!). Parallelly, we are also creating stories that Glass is best suited for: first-person, point-of-view videos.
We’ve learned that Glass can create truly immersive video experiences and we want to harness its potential to create powerful stories.
Our team has been having a lot of fun brainstorming ideas and contacting people from different walks of life for their POV stories. We came up with drummers, artists, chefs, sportsmen, firefighters, policemen, band orchestrators and many more.
Sara Clayton from our class took a tour of the Grand Central Market and got a taco seller to wear Glass to record his world while making tacos. She also placed her Glass on a Barista to capture the designs he creates on a cup of cappuccino.
Professor Hernandez took Glass when he went for his haircut and had his barber record his point of view.
Several of us are pursuing other stories and teaching people to record their stories on Glass (And we’ve had amusing consequences. Watch the video below.)
But we also decided to invite those from outside the class to pitch us ideas of POV stories we should try to capture.
Write in the comment section below us about whose shoes would you want to walk in for a minute.
Let us know if you know someone who does cool things that you want the world to see. We’d love to hear your ideas and work with you to help you produce the piece.
