It is said that patents are the new ammunition when it comes to intellectual property, and the folks over at Google sure know a thing or two about patents. Having said that, the Internet search giant has managed to patent the “ornamental design” of their Project Glass, which is an augmented reality eyewear that we talked about earlier this year. For most folks, the Project Glass might resemble your everyday pair of glasses, but underneath the hood (or should I say, within the rims itself) lies a whole lot of technology which some say is uncanny and might hail from outer space. There are DIY Project Glasses lying around after all if you have the technical know how to get around in creating one, but for the majority of us out there, we would most probably wait for the real deal to arrive. After all, with the ability to wear it over most prescription glasses, Project Glass looks set to be a hit when it is introduced to the masses.
