glass garage door

With all the secrecy around Google’s Project Glass, sometimes we can learn hidden features based on the patents Google files for Glass.  The latest of these patents can be seen above.  The patent demonstrates the user being able to communicate with appliances (i.e. garage doors and refrigerators).  Of course patents do not necessarily mean the feature will be functional within Glass (for now).

The patent that is drawn out about the garage door shows that Glass will connect to the door with RFID, QR, or some other form of communication and then the user will be able to control the appliance.

The second example shows a refrigerator.  This patent demonstrated the user’s ability to keep a shopping list and possibly control the temperature of the appliance.

I can see a deep integration of Google Now and Keep with Glass.  We will just have to wait to see what Glass will be able to do when it finally comes out!
