My thoughts on Google’s Skydive

Yesterday, Scoble uploaded a short interview with GoPro’s Kris Jamieson, who helped make the skydive happen. Jamieson mentions at about 1:45 that the whole stunt was a ‘last minute’ thing. There’s nothing wrong with that, but when you think about it further it all starts to make sense.

The skydive was just a skydive. While impressive, it had nothing to do with Google Glass. it’s almost as if Google didn’t have anything worth showing, so they figured they could distract us with some fancy tricks and shiny stuff. Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t it just a camera attached to their heads?

Google obviously needed to do this; why else would they do it?
