Physics teacher does a Google Glass hangout at the large hadron collider [Video]

So here's the story about the video you see below. One thing I saw being debated on CNN yesterday was the application of Google Glass. Throughout the discussion one thing was very clear - Google Glass would be good for teaching and that's exactly what one physics professor did. Andrew Vanden Heuvel who teaches physics online especially for schools that don't offer advanced physics courses. Did something really cool. He got a chance to experiment with Google Glass and wore it on a field trip to CERN in Switzerland. CERN is the place to go to if you want to look back to the very beginning of the universe.

physics teacher takes google glass to CERNCERN is also the birthplace of the World Wide Web WWW - yeah, the internet. In the video you get to see the large hadron collider. Andrew also gets on a cycle adn takes a ride down the 27 km tunnel, which his brothers students get to watch the whole thing. This is a pretty amazing video and thanks to Google Glass - these kind of techie things are possible. Andrew also has a blog called 'Teaching with Google Glass', which you can follow to check out his Google Glass Classes.
