/// Google Actually Considered Sending Felix Baumgartner To Space With Google Glass
According to a conversation on Twitter between Danny Sullivan and a member of YouTube the staff, Google considered sending Felix Baumgartner to space for his jump with a pair of Google Glass. That would have been awesome…again.
Can you imagine seeing what Felix’s eyes were seeing as he was falling? And then, you know…answering questions on Google+ Hangouts and checking your tweets by winking your eye or something. Maybe next time, Red Bull? There will be a next time, right?

Sill think it would have been cool if Google had given @RedBullStratos a pair of those Google Glass eyeglasses to wear
@dannysullivan @RedBullStratos we discussed it but other factors prevented that from being safely deployed.

Not only would it have been a great use of Google Glass, but it would have given us a perspective that only Felix himself would ever see.
Watch live. Over 8 million viewers watched the stream on YouTube. What a hell of a Google+ Hangout, eh?
If you want, you can make your own until they’re widely available.
