Some of you may have already seen Google’s announcement about Project Glass, a set of glasses that would overlay digital data over the real world.

My first thought about these glasses was about how they could be used in board games, RPGs, etc…

OK, I lie. My first thought was, “ME WANT NOW!”

That’s besides the point.

Think about it. Game masters for a RPG could keep data safely hidden from players while still having full view of the gaming area. Board gamers could keep track of everything from counters, money, victory points, board conditions, player aids, etc… CCG players could keep their card list, good card combos, and more without relying on sheets of notes. The possibilities are virtually endless.

Of course this all depends on if these glasses actually hit the market, and if there’s an open development platform for them.

We can dream, right?
