There’s much to be said about Google Glass, from the advances in wearable computing technology to the inherent privacy concerns of having a camera mounted on your face.

Believe me; I’m excited about it, and I’m betting you probably are too. But hype aside, I’d like to present you with this video titled “Google Glass & Basketball Practice,” shared by Noble Ackerson.

If you loved Cloverfield, you’re in luck: now that the first few hundred people are gaining access to Glass, first-person shaky cam will soon take over the Internet.

This clip shows off an interesting and uncommon perspective that can only come from wearing a camera on your head. It has a novel appeal, and is pretty entertaining to watch at first. But then, shortly after the first 10 seconds, it becomes a dizzying experience.

Get ready, folks. You’re about to see videos like this everywhere.
