When you have a spanking new invention, there is one thing that you definitely need to make sure you do – file a patent for it. After all, you can never quite tell just when your invention is going to be lusted after by millions of people worldwide, turning you in to a famous personality overnight. The Project Glass from Google is one bright spark of an idea, where it has just received another four patents. Google is now the proud owner of the rights for the Project Glass’ design of the right half of the device, allowing the camera to ‘float’ right there over the eye while the rest of its insides remain concealed within the band. Not only that, Google has also patented the nose-pad sensor which will be able to detect when it is worn, in addition to the ability to represent ambient sounds on the display alongside range and direction info. Last but not least, the Project Glass also received the patent for the ability to use each eyepiece as a separate display. Can’t wait for the real deal? Neither can we.
