Tech Tuesday 7/16

Google Glass to the NFL, and electricity from poo? That and more in this week's Tech Tuesday!

Google Glass has been getting a lot of hype for it's potential, but do the smart glasses have a future in the NFL?
 
ESPN stopped by a St. Louis Rams practice and had Quarterback Sam Bradford and Receiver Tavon Austin give them a try and it looks pretty cool.
 
The Rams general manager, Les Snead, sees potential in the technology. If a similar camera was mounted to helmets, fans in the stadium and at home could have the same views as the players on the field.
 
Neptune has a new moon, not exactly new, but NASA just discovered the planet's 14th moon.
 
It's 12 miles across and 100 million times dimmer than the faintest star visible to the naked eye. It's so small that the Voyager spacecraft missed it when it passed by Neptune in 1989.
 
Starting Thursday, over 125,000 people are expected to pass though the San Diego Convention Center over a four day period for the San Diego Comic Con.
 
The event features the latest on upcoming movies, television shows, video games and more.  Actors, directors and producers join together to host panels and offer inside looks. Some popular panels are bound to be HBO's Game of Thrones and Marvel's two for one panel for the upcoming Captain America and Thor movies.
 
And power, from poo? A farm in Maine is collecting about 30,000 gallons of manure and mixing it with hundreds of pounds of food waste.
 
The end result leaves methane gas building in large dome-like structures called digesters, which produce electricity.
 
So far, the digesters have produced $600,000 worth.
