Referee Glasses Cam Brings Sports Fans Closer To The Action [Video]
WNBA debuts Ref Cam, showing unique unseen angles of the game.
WNBA referree Lamont Simpson had players looking twice at him at Saturday night’s game. During the nationally televised match up between Phoenix Mercury and Indiana Fever, Simpson wore a camera attached to his head, giving pundits and sports fans a never-before-seen perspective of the game from his Ref Cam.
The Ref Cam, developed by Broadcast Games Inc. (BSI) looks similar in design to Google Glass, with the device harnessed to a pair of lensless glasses, while the camera itself is akin to a GoPro portable camera.
