Imagine the Possibilities

Project Glass, from Google:


Can you imagine an entire audience equipped with these devices? How could the heads-up display be used to enrichen the theatrical experience? Some thoughts:
  • A play where the character's "inner monologue" pops up at key moments.
  • The heads-up display could be used to superimpose a ghostly character onstage.
  • A character watches a video message on her electronic device. The audience sees this video message on their headsets.
  • During blackouts, the device could extend the narrative, provide linking scenes, etc. (Imagine a stage production of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy where the guide segments play out on this device.)
  • For an environmental staging, the device could guide the audience through the space, from scene to scene.
This looks to be an amazing device with some incredible potential.
