Google Glass now has games

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Google Glass, the latest in wearable tech/sci-fi eyewear of the future/thing that will make people look at you like you are a crazy person because you are talking to yourself, now has mini-games. Available to download and play now are Tennis, Balance, Clay Shooter, Matcher and Shape Splitter.

Tennis is, well, tennis, but the other games are a bit different. Balance has you using Glass' gyroscope to try and balance virtual books on your head, Clay Shooter is more or less a first-person shooter (emphasis on the first-person) where you blast clay targets, Matcher is a memory game of matching identical tiles, and Shape Splitter is a quasi-Fruit Ninja game where you, yes, split shapes.

Of course, these aren't the most robust of gaming experiences, but they don't have to be. These introductory games could entice other developers into building new experiences for Glass users, and that's going to be important as Google moves forward with the technology. After all, who wants cool futuristic tech if it's not fun?
