Samsung Patent Turns People’s Palms Into Virtual Keyboards
The company is working on a new input method for a smart wearable device.
Earlier this year, the tech world was abuzz with reports of Samsung developing its own set of smart glasses to rival Google Glass, and now a new patent is adding more weight to these reports.
Samsung has reportedly filed a patent that would place a camera-based augmented reality keyboard onto one’s palms. The keyboard will only be visible to the user wearing a smart glasses type of device.
According to the patent, titled Input Method and Apparatus of Portable Device, the feature will help eliminate the issues that speech recognition-based controls can run into like low recognition accuracy especially in noisy environments and the need for privacy.
