New Google patent will allow users to capture pictures with Glass-like devices

Google has now been awarded a patent which enables a Glass-like head-mounted display to automatically take pictures when it recognizes a consumer's fingers. The device is capable of making any additional cropping, white balance and exposure adjustments as well.


Google has now been awarded a patent which enables a Glass-like head-mounted display to automatically take pictures when it recognises a consumer's fingers. The device is capable of making any additional cropping, white balance and exposure adjustments as well.

According to a report by Engadget, if a user made a circular "O" shape with one hand, they can end up with a round picture. The same technique goes for using two hands to frame a rectangular portrait. The device's camera will look out for fingers to screen up in its view, and as in when it senses them, it will capture the photo. The report pointed out that there is no assurance that the tech will be used in a new version of Glass or any other device.

In the past, Google had filed a patent to create a system by which Google Glass can recommend dance moves to those who wear the high tech device. “The content identification module may provide information associated with a content of the media sample, such as identification of the song and the dance, to the wearable computing system,” the patent reads.

That means Google Glass will have an ability to determine what particular song is playing in the background before suggesting dance moves from a possible library of moves stored in its database, ‘Tech Times’ reported. The device may also show the user a video of other people dancing to the same song in order to help the user understand what moves they should be doing.
