Jim Harbaugh Tries on Google Glass

Posted Feb 20, 2014

Jim Harbaugh continues to be a trendsetter, giving his unique perspective on Google Glass.

In an effort to get "one mile an hour faster," 49ers Studios has brought Google Glass to the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine in order to enhance our coverage.

Executive producer Rob Alberino, senior reporter Taylor Price, associate producer Michael Horton and I will each be sporting Glass at different times throughout the week to show fans our perspective during the multitude of media interviews with coaches, general managers and NFL hopefuls.

In a recent interview, I asked Jim Harbaugh if he wanted to try out the new technology.

To my surprise, he didn't hesitate.

"It's even got the time on there," Harbaugh said as he wore them for the first time.

Even though the 49ers head coach has gone on record, calling social media a time drain, he is well aware of its potential on the football field.

"Lets get our quarterbacks wearing them during practice and OTAs," Harbaugh said.

Whether you see Colin Kaepernick dropping back while wearing Glass this offseason remains to be seen.

Stay tuned...
