SAMSUNG ELECT LTD(F) (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) Files Patent For Its Own Angle On Google Glass

Alphabet Inc (GOOG) Google Glass

SAMSUNG ELECT LTD(F)  has filed a patent for a Google Glass-style device, but its way ahead than Google Inc ’s current technology, says a report from Business Insider. The Korean firm’s device allows users to use 3D images in mid-air to dial contacts, send SMS and even play a virtual piano.


Samsung idea beyond Google Glass

Samsung has filed many patents in September related to its own project of smart glasses, suggesting that the Korean firm is still nurturing a dream of consumers wearing AR glasses that work with their phones. The US Patent and Trademark Office has approved various patents relating to parts to be used in Samsung’s smart glass.

The firm also filed a patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization pointing the uses the smart glasses could be put to, and those are far beyond the scope what Google Inc imagined, the report says.

Apple Watch comes with a physical watch face screen, where users can tap to answer calls, check their calendar or access apps. On Google Glass, interactions can be made by either by tapping a button on the right frame arm of the device or using voice specific commands.

Samsung’s patent describe the use of two cameras in the glass to project 3D images in mid-air to create a virtual input interface, giving users a visual way of interacting with the apps and the phone. Samsung engineers have also made an attempt to visualize how a smart glass user could project the AR objects onto physical real-life objects, and use it for interacting with menus and apps.

Google Glass still not dead

Despite being popular, Google Glass has not been a commercial success, so, the Internet firm discontinued its sales earlier this year. Experts view the gadget as an expensive toy that does not have any clear use.

Though the gadget failed miserably, but the firm is still working on the project with full dedication behind closed doors. Google recently filed for a new patent that will enable the wearable head-gear to display holographic projections.

Google Inc has been stepping up its AR efforts, and recently played a vital role in a half-billion funding round for Magic Leap, a firm involved in AR gaming content. The firm also come up with many 3D games earlier this year. Who knows, going forward, Magic Leap may create content for Goggle’s holographic headset.

At around 1.30 PM EDT today, Google shares were down 0.41% at $668.88. Year to date, the stock is up almost 25% while in the last one-year, they are up over 13%.
