VIDEO: Ref cam makes debut in WNBA game
The WNBA debuted a new camera on Saturday worn by referee Lamont Simpson during a nationally televised game between the Phoenix Mercury and the Indiana Fever. The camera was mounted on the right side of his ear and resembled a pair of glasses.
In fact, it looks similar to Google’s Google Glass wearable computer device, except the camera part almost looks like a pager from the early 1990s.
The ref cam seems like a great idea for fans to view a new perspective when watching televised games, and I hope more pro sports leagues use it once the components become smaller.
