Thought of the day: Google Glass in the Peloton

I’m sure you’ve heard of Google glass by now–essentially glasses with a heads-up display and microcomputer integrated into their design.

What about Google glass in the peloton. Imagine being able to get instant, visual updates from the coach. See your gearing, power output, speed, cadence, etc without looking down. Know how many seconds behind–or ahead–you are from the leader, your target time, or teammates. How about your coach setting a visual power goal instead of hollering over the radio? What about seeing the climb profile in real time? How about seeing the racer status bar normally seen on TV, in your glasses?

Essentially, all of the information available now in various forms, condensed into one location, in a visual format. Immediate information.

It’s a matter of time.
