We have been hearing rumors that Samsung would be bringing its own version of Google Glass to the market for a long time now, but now we have a patent that will be incorporated into these supposed “Galaxy Glass”. If you take a look at some of the images from the patent above then you’ll immediately see whats going on here, the Galaxy Glass will project a virtual keyboard onto your fingers allowing you to reply to messages. This is actually a great idea, I’ll admit its a tad bit gimmicky but for the most part it can have some real practical use. Say for instance that you are in a crowded and loud place and can’t reply to a message using voice dictation for 2 reasons, you don’t want everyone around you to hear your message, and on top of that the voice dictation probably won’t be able to hear you correctly. So you just use the virtual keyboard projected onto your fingers.
Lets get down to how this thing actually works. What would happen according to the patent is that the Galaxy Glass would project a keyboard onto your fingers that only the wearer would see through the glasses, this would allow the wearer to reply to messages by just tapping on the letters being projected onto their fingers.
Now it’s important to remember that this is just a patent and tech companies are well-known for filling hundreds of these that never come to fruition. That said I am still hoping that this comes as a feature when Samsung’s Galaxy Glass is finally born. Lets all keep our fingers crossed because lets face it, this would just be cool to use.
