[Video] Great IndyCar pit team mayhem captured with Google Glass

The automotive industry and the motorsport sector especially, as one of the key adopting factors, has always embraced the latest and greatest from the tech industry. So, here’s a great mix of IndyCar pit team madness, seen through Google’s latest project Glass.

Because we’re actually sure that you all know that IndyCar is a motorsport series that mirrors in the US part of the global effect of Formula 1, we’ll just give you some pointers about Google Glass. They’re essentially the plain old glasses – you can even have them with prescription lenses or as sun shades – equipped with a state of the art wearable computer and an optical head-mounted display (OHMD). That’s Google’s idea of the future of technology – it develops on the smartphones of today, allowing the user to access the Internet via language voice commands.

With the practical applications virtually limited only by our imagination and the developer’s ideas of apps, we can see the video shot by Engage Mobile Solutions looking at practice pit stops of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing – which certainly give us a good idea of the frantic pace the crew needs to keep the driver as little as possible with them.

The crew of the team – owned by Late Night host David Letterman and 1986 Indy 500 winner Bobby Rahal – was preparing for this weekend’s Grand Prix of Indianapolis, held May 10 on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s raceway – which also hosted the 2000-2007 Formula One United States Grand Prix.
