Dr. Syb Bennett, professor of journalism, has been selected as one of the 8,000 Google Glass Explorers testing the wearable computer while it is in beta. She was selected as part of the “If I Had Glass” Twitter competition. She said she’d use Glass to promote public interest, necessity and convenience like broadcast outlets. Specifically, she is experimenting on how it can best be used in journalism and in the classroom. She is chronicling her experience at http://drsyb.tumblr.com. She also created an iMovie trailer documenting her experience.
Bennett was featured on FOX17 News Thursday for her work with Google Glass. Glass is expected to be available for consumers to purchase later this year.
