Jamie Oliver cooks with Google Glass

Chef Jamie Oliver is now cooking up some summer treats and one of the ingredients to his summer recipe is Google Glass. Oliver is wearing Google Glass in a promotion to give users his first-person perspective on how he prepares and cooks up his creation. Wearing Google Glass, Oliver's audience essentially sees what the chef sees.

And while it may be fun to see Oliver cook with shades on indoors, perhaps he can get a Google Glass unit with normal specs so that he's not wearing sunglasses indoors, as stylish as they may be.

Do you find it helpful to see this first-hand first-person, perspective when chef Oliver is cooking? Is this something that you would want to see on all your cooking shows, or is it just a mere gimmick as people try to figure out what to do with Glass?

As someone who doesn't follow basketball at all ... I'm not going to see a basketball player and go ... Ummmmm who? Because I know I would look dumb even commenting.

Anyone who is onto cooking and follows that world knows who Jaime Oliver is. So, as someone who clearly doesn't follow the cooking world, why comments in a smug way?

Huh.... whatttt?

I don't know how helpful it is, but would be neat to see.

I work as a private chef and I suspect Jaime will teach watchers techniques that will, among other things, increase efficiency and ease in kitchen operations of all sorts. Methods that amateurs and experts alike could benefit from. I think it's a great Google glass implementation. I'm a Jaime fan though so...

So much of a fan that you spelt his name wrong? Twice.

Looks weird while he's cooking. But like all products as heavily promoted as Glass, we'll get used to it.

You're right. It looks "weird" because you're not used to seeing it. Once upon a time, people weren't used to seeing people with smart phones. We seem to have gotten over that one quickly ;)

Jidd says:

Didn't think it would be humanly possible to not know who Jamie Oliver is, the man done more shows, churned out more cookbooks then Martha Stewart during the last15 years haha!
On topic, this is one of the major use cases where I really think Google glass will be able to deliver a firsthand experience and a pov for audience/seminar/technical workshops that no one else can deliver.

I haven't had cable for 7+ years.

As per above comment I agree totally say for instance how good it would be to see someone put an engine together in first person prospective and how much easier it would be to teach people? Just an example.

Are they trying to boost sales or hinder them?

If you look at the parts of the video that show him looking down (not through GG), he has to bring his chin almost to his chest. Google needs to do something about that. That's not a natural motion for people. We tilt our heads down, sure, but we rotate our eyes down also. GG doesn't rotate down.

This is really the only thing i see Glass being useful for and it seems like a good fit. Education type purposes, maybe a bunch of work related purposes, military and porn.

There seem to be quite a few good uses for Glass but it looks and always will look too stupid to wear around the general public.

The footage needs to be run through some stabilization software before it's usable. I feel a little seasick after watching that.

TenshiNo says:

It didn't bother me, but I do agree that some stabilization software would have made it a lot more pleasant to watch.
