Gadget makers aren’t giving up on the idea of getting Google Glass-style augmented reality specs on our faces, with a recently filed Samsung patent the latest evidence that more of these wearable devices are on the way.
Spotted by Patently Apple, the filing shows a fairly standard design for a pair of glasses with added smarts on board. They’re going to be foldable, apparently, so you can pop them in your pocket when you’re not being wowed by AR.
A tiny projector mounted on the wearer’s temple beams images in front of the eye, though we don’t get much detail about what information the glasses would actually show. We’re guessing smartphone notifications for a start.
The filing does make mention of an ARM processor, so that could well be one of the components that make it into the finished version of the specs. An on-board camera and various sensors are also mentioned.
