First fight and arrest video captured via Google Glass in New Jersey

We may have seen the first marriage proposal made via glass,first
glass skydiver. But we haven't seen the first ''wristlemania'' being
filmed via glass. Now a New Jersey man claims he has filmed the first
fight and arrest on Google Glass.
The man whose name is Chris Barrent said he was opportune to capture
the incredible moment while taking a walk down a beach. He heard
noises and so decided to see all that the noise was all about. There,
he saw a fight and immediately started filming it via Google Glass
without anyone noticing. Remarkable!
According to him, "I think if I had a bigger camera there, the kid
would probably
have punched me," Barrett told Venture Beat. "But I was able
to capture the action with Glass and I didn't have to hold up a
cell phone and press record." Overall, he sounds more excited
than nervous about the video capabilities: "This is a huge step
in citizen journalism," Barrett said. "If Google Glass takes off,
everyone's going to have their entire life captured…first
words, first steps…but also people getting shot, and natural
disasters."
