KC Symphony musicians to wear Google Glass

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Classical music and technology may sound like an odd combination, but they are coming together at the Kansas City Symphony.

Friday night, the director and three musicians will be wearing Google Glass. It will allow others to see the first person perspective of those in the symphony.

"So as they move their head or interact in different ways with the instrument itself, the Google Glass will be capturing that perspective using a camera that is out of the front of the device," Darren Clawson of Engage Mobile Solutions said.

Future ideas for Google Glass include having musicians view their music on their glasses instead of having to use sheet music.
