Betfair using Google Glass technologyBetfair is to bring “space age” technology to those placing bets on its many websites. The company is introducing Google’s Google Glass headsets to improve its clients’ betting experience. The glasses are being incorporated into Betfair’s television betting slots in the United Kingdom. They are being still being tested but are already in use by presenters on Betfair’s spots on a television horse racing channel.

Betfair at the cutting edge

Betfair lead the way in 2000 when it became the first betting exchange where clients could bet at odds set by themselves or others. It is now the largest betting exchange in the world and is also the United Kingdom’s largest betting and gaming group. Now Betfair is to be among the first to incorporate Google Glass headsets into its offer to its customers. Players can buy the Google glasses for £1000 but they have only been on the market for the past few weeks. They look just like a normal pair of glasses with a small box over the wearer’s right eye which holds a display unit. Betfair customers who have the glasses will be able to get completely up to date real time betting information wherever they are. At the moment while the glasses are being trialled, Betfair clients can see them in use on television on the company’s betting slots. However, Betfair hopes to introduce the glasses as a real part of their clients betting experience and can see great potential for the Google Glass technology.
