Google is in the process of having "explorers" test its Glass product, which is a wearable, tiny computer screen attached to the side of eyeglass frames. It connects to a smartphone and also allows wearers to shoot video from their point-of-view, among many other functions.
Oladipo's Glass experience showed him waking up in his New York City hotel room on draft day, singing to himself (pretty well, I might add), getting ready to go to Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the draft, and hanging out with other players -- all from his point of view. (He's also asked by an NBA official to take off the Glass. Boo!)
There's no word on whether Oladipo will be bringing his Google Glass with him to the Magic, but it would great to experience his rookie season from his point of view.
