Italy’s Teatro Lirico di Cagliar will become the first in the world to hold an interactive opera using Google Glass. The opera company will be holding a trial performance with Google’s first wearable July 30 of Giacomo Puccini’s Turnadot.
The Glass experience uses a system developed by TSC Labs and lets the audience view the performance through the eyes of the performers or backstage access from the view point of a stage hand.
This is not the first innovation coming out of this theatre. Teatro Lirico di Cagliar proudly hosts a Research and Technology centre and along with the Google Glass experience, the theatre will also be offering live streams on its social media, sending real-time photos and videos to those that follow.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
