Google’s Project Glass might just make wearing a pair of glasses cool – really cool, so much so that you might find kids ending up pestering their parents to get them a pair of glasses. While we have seen our fair share of Project Glass updates in the past, there are still nitty gritty issues to look at and discover, and the trackpad is one of them. Google’s Sergey Brin was spotted in the past to use his finger on what looked like a trackpad on one side, raising many questions in the process, such as how was it possible to function, and what kind of interface does one’s eye see in the glass itself?
Having said that, Google just picked up a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a trackpad on both sides of the glasses frame, where this particular trackpad is said to be compatible with the up, down, left and right gestures, not to mention paving the way for you to perform item selection thanks to the trackpad.
