The photographers reacted immediately when Germán Burgos put his Google Glass in the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez of Getafe. The image of our assistant coach immediately spread in the media and the social networks. The LFP have developed the first native Google Glass application that allows a club's technical staff to obtain all the statistics that they may needed during a game, was tried live for the first time.
The ground-breaking initiative had been announced by the League last Saturday through a press release, "The product allows the analysis of games in real time and the extraction of data from each game; clubs will have all the information about their own game, and of the sides they will face throughout the season. It will be the first time that Google Glass integrates such a useful footballing service".
Germán Burgos could access, without taking his eyes off the game, statistics updated every 30 seconds and grouped in four fields. With a simple flick of his finger, our assistant coach could “browse”' between "General statistics", "Game Building", "Defence" and "Shots".
Furthermore, the glasses had the statistics from the previous game saved on them, so they were available to consult without the need of an Internet connection. For a live trial like this Sunday’s, the glasses were connected to the Internet to be able to receive the data.
