Samsung Galaxy Glass to have palm projected keyboard
It is no surprise that the trend started by Google Glasses has sparked a fire that is engulfing every electronic giant’s imagination into making one for themselves too. Samsung has not been in the hiding like others, and has revealed it is making smart glasses that are better than Google Glasses. Christened as Samsung Galaxy Glass, the smart glasses are slated to be unveiled in the latter half of this year or early months of 2015. Some say it is going to be released at the same time as the release of Galaxy Note 4 which is good news for Samsung lovers who are longing for the ultimate smartphone, smartwatch and smart glass combo.
The final version of the smart glasses is going to be similar or maybe different to the patent filed, and we can expect to see it in the coming months from Samsung as a prototype.
A latest patent filing publication at the World Intellectual Property Organization and Korean Intellectual Property Office has given us some insight into what this would actually be like as it will have a camera-based augmented reality keyboard which projects numbers on the palm of your hand. So you could pretty well be dialing numbers or writing text by using this augmented reality interface on the fingers of your palm.
This new method of inputting numbers or alphabets using laser or beam projector will save Samsung from making a separate physical input device for the Galaxy Glass. The final version of the smart glasses is going to be similar or maybe different to the patent filed, and we can expect to see it in the coming months from Samsung as a prototype.
