One IU player’s perspective

Hoosier fans tuned in to the NBA draft last week to see how Victor Oladipo would fare. The best watching came later, however, when the IU standout’s own perspective was revealed from his Google Glass video.

The Verge, a website devoted to technology, science, art and culture, fitted Oladipo with the camera-equipped eyewear to record the event. The video, at theverge.com, shows him learning to use the device, which combines a camera and screen with Internet technology. There’s footage of his ride to the Barclay’s Center, where he greets ex-teammate Cody Zeller.

Unfortunately, NBA representatives direct Oladipo to remove the eyewear before he takes the stage with Commissioner David Stern. He told The Verge he wouldn’t risk a fine on his first day with the league.

Too bad – wouldn’t we all like to see what it feels like to shake hands with Stern and instantly become a millionaire?
