According to a patent discovered by Patently Apple, it appears that Google has filed a patent for what appears to be a pair of smart glasses. However, this iteration will be different from the original design, where it appears to look more like your typical pair of glasses rather than a fancy tech gadget, which could help make them blend in with the environment a lot better.
Whether or not Google plans to bring this device to market remains to be seen, especially since patents are not a guarantee of that happening. However, we can’t say we’re surprised that the company could still be exploring the idea of wearables. Google’s rival Apple is said to be working on a pair of smart glasses that could debut in the next couple of years, so maybe Google isn’t quite ready to completely cede market share to Apple just yet.
