Ever since Google Glass, Google’s uber-expensive computer spectacles that make people look like awkward-looking human robots, was unleashed on a few fortunate select individuals, we’ve seen our share of POV videos during sporting events that have given us unique perspectives we rarely have had access to in the past.
But never has it been used during actual live NFL activity. That is until Monday at Raiders training camp when Chris Kluwe wore a pair of Google Glass (Google Glasses?) and recorded some footage.
OK, yeah, he’s a punter. It’s not Denarius Moore running a deep post or Charles Woodson picking off a pass and taking it to the house or Darren McFadden running between the tackles and then spraining an ankle. But, even still, this is some fascinating footage you won’t get to find very often, until maybe the NFL invents Helmet Cam, or Apple, to compete with Google Glass, invents iBrain, a microchip that gets implanted in our brain stems (definitely get Apple Care protection with that).
Here’s Sebastian Janikowski taking some kicks with Glass on and then being told he looks like a Bond villain (uh, OK):
And returning a punt against a team of invisible people:
Raiders punter Chris Kluwe filmed himself at training camp with his Google Glass.
In the video below, Kluwe handed his Google Glass to kicker Sebastian Janikowski to take some video while he booted some field goals.

Jerry McDonald of InsidetheBayArea.com believes wide receiver Rod Streater could end up becoming Matt Flynn’s go-to receiver this season. Rod Streater has been the most consistent player and could emerge as the go-to receiver for Flynn and Co. because they’re relatively certain he’ll come down with the ball. If Flynn is going to have any success this season, he’s going to...
Week Two: Terrelle Pryor is not that bright When you do something stupid as a college kid.
You sorta have an out, or a do over or something.
In Terrelle Pryor’s case, he went from being a stud preparing for the NFL to a dud begging for mercy in the supplemental draft.
Why? Because he did something stupid.
Common sense would like us all to think that after you do something...
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor told Raiders.com that he worked out with a throwing mechanics coach during the offseason that also worked with Tom Brady and Drew Brees. I went and worked out with a guy named Tom House. He’s [Tom] Brady and [Drew] Brees’… I’m sure you guys have heard of him, he’s a baseball pitcher. He’s a throwing mechanic freak. He breaks everything down...
The raiders had their fourth day of camp today and their second padded practice. Here are some notes. My information comes from Raiders beat writers via Twitter and can be found on Twitter as @LeviDamien @ChrisMcClain @CorkOnTheNfl (Steve Corkran) @VicTafur @AsherMatthews @ChrisHansenNFL. I will be compiling all of their information throughout training camp. For all Raiders...
Darren McFadden hopes that going downhill will be just the tonic to revive his career with the Oakland Raiders.
Back in a familiar offense that suits his running style perfectly, McFadden is looking to bounce back from a disastrous 2012 campaign and return to the big-play back he was for the two years Hue Jackson ran the Raiders' offense.
Oakland switched schemes after Jackson...
We’ve already reported that Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn has looked like the top quarterback so far in training camp.
The San Francisco Chronicle considers the Raiders starting job Flynn’s to lose right now, despite the fact that Terrelle Pryor has looked good so far in camp.
Pryor may have the better arm and be more athletic, but the starting quarterback’s job is Matt...

Oakland Raiders backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor picked a fine time to come out and admit a severe deficiency, just as the 2013 NFL season is getting underway.
Pryor is as athletic, and gifted a player you’ll ever meet, but was never the strongest passer. Pryor did his best to fix that deficiency, by hiring Tom House to be his quarterback coach this off-season.
A few thoughts about the Raiders training camp, trying to make sense of all the information that is generated every day:
-It’s no big secret that the Raiders lack a true #1 wide receiver – someone who can take over a game and who requires opponents to plan their defense around covering him – but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be able to move the ball in the passing...
The Raiders on Monday agreed to a deal with free agent linebacker Omar Gaither.
The team is currently banged up at the position with Miles Burris, Kaluka Maiava and Sio Moore among the linebackers dealing with injuries. Gaither was originally brought on in the second half of the season but was mostly ineffective starting at middle linebacker when Rolando McClain was busy being a...
Yesterday, the Vikings treated us to a first-person view of training camp thanks to Adrian Peterson's helmet camera. Now, thanks to one of our favorite players, Chris Kluwe, we can see the world of the NFL from a kicker's perspective.
We know of three videos from the Raiders' kickers using Google's trendy eyewear, Google Glass.
The first shows Kluwe punting...

Finally. Finally. The Kevin Love saga appears to be coming to an official end.
