Bowling News USA - January 10, 2014 Belmo's Google Glass Perfection

Bowling fans will be able to observe bowling through the eyes of Storm two-handed star Jason Belmonte (pictured) during the Barbasol PBA Tournament of Champions when he wears Google Glass during the opening round of qualifying at Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Mich., on Jan. 18.

Google Glass is a "wearable computer" which features a head band frame that includes a digital camera capable of recording 720 dpi video, 16 GB of memory and voice recording technology. It operates like a hands-free smartphone. 


 

The PBA will record video of one game through the eyes of Belmonte from the first round of TOC qualifying. The Google Glass viewpoint will then be posted on PBA's exclusive online bowling channel, Xtra Frame so Xtra Frame subscribers can click on the download whenever they want to watch the game as Belmonte saw it. 

Belmonte also was wearing Google Glass when he bowled a 300 game during league play in the Wednesday Night Doubles at his family's Orange Tenpin Bowl in Orange, New South Wales, Australia, a week before Christmas. He recorded the game and posted it on YouTube, where it has been viewed by thousands of YouTube visitors. 

In addition to the Belmonte-Google Glass special segment, Xtra Frame subscribers will be able to watch all qualifying and match play rounds of the Tournament of Champions. Subscriptions are available for $7.99 for one month or $64.99 for a full year. To subscribe, visit pba.com and click on the Xtra Frame tab.
