We have previously reported that the Internet giant Google is working on the creation of the second generation of virtual reality glasses Google Glass. They will probably get the function of photographing with a "finger frame". At least, this is hinted at by a new patent numbered 9, 076, 033, which was granted to Google by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
A new patent describes manually initiated photography using a head-worn device. In other words, for taking photographs, it will be enough to make a so-called frame from the fingers in the field of view of the camera built into the wearable device. At the same time, by changing the position of the fingers, the user will be able to crop, shoot in portrait or landscape mode, and even take pictures of a round shape.
True, to track the position of the hands, the system must be constantly active, which, in turn, will not have the best effect on the energy efficiency of the device. The new technology is likely to find its way into the next generation of Google Glass.
By the way, sources say that the next Google Glass will get a larger display, an improved Intel Atom processor and increased battery life compared to its predecessor. Also, the new glasses will receive support for Wi-Fi 802.11ac with channels 2, 4 GHz and 5 GHz. According to one of the versions, Google Glass Enterprise Edition will be targeted at the corporate market, and not at ordinary consumers.
