L’Equipe.fr to launch first European Google Glass sports App

Have you ever wanted to check Roberto Carlos’ date of birth without looking away from your TV? Or maybe watch Didier Drogba’s little brother’s video where he gets exorcised during a visit to the United States without missing CR7’s next free kick? All this could soon be possible thanks L’Equipe.fr’s new Google Glass application!

Indeed, the French media will be the first in France, and some say in Europe, to offer a Google Glass application even though the much sought after devices are not even being sold to the general public yet!

This application will be available in the next few days for some 8,000 Explorers who are testing the Google Glass (official release in 2014). They will be notified in real time of the latest sports news. This flow of information can be customized from a choice of 13 disciplines, and then red to the Glass wearer after a gentle tap on the frame. Each news , presented as an image with a title and a brief summary, may in particular be shared on social networks .

The application, which is free , was developed by Niji , a consultancy , design and technology firm dedicated to the use of digital convergence.
