Apple granted a patent to Make a Google Glass-like device

5 July, 2012 Apple



Google is the first company to show its Smart head-mounted computer called "Google Glass" to the world, but this doesn't stop Apple from patenting the idea, It turns out Apple has filed this patent way back in 2006! Of course, the patent seems to be a bit vague and doesn't necessarily mean that Apple is working on a Glass-like device, but it does seem to have a lot in common with stuff like head-mounted displays projecting images to the user's eyes and other stuff like that.

Here is a brief description of Apple Statement:


"Methods and apparatus, including computer program products, implementing and using techniques for projecting a source image in a head-mounted display apparatus for a user. A first display projects an image viewable by a first eye of the user. A first peripheral light element is positioned to emit light of one or more colors in close proximity to the periphery of the first display. A receives data representing a source image, processes the data representing the source image to generate a first image for the first display and to generate a first set of peripheral conditioning signals for the first peripheral light element, directs the first image to the first display, and directs the first set of peripheral conditioning signals to the first peripheral light element. As a result, an enhanced viewing experience is created for the user."
