Will Google Glass Be Reborn as a Dance Guru?
The tech giant's developers may be honing a multimedia system for getting your groove on
Filed in 2011, a newly approved Google patent suggests that the company may have a very special program in store, one that could take over a time-honored responsibility usually reserved for love interests and big brothers pre-prom: teaching you how to dance.
The patent describes “[methods] and systems for determining dance steps based on music and/or other dancers,” possibly accessed by a head mounted display (HMD) and including a “content identification module.”
The “wearable computing system” would serve as an on-the-fly dance instructor by “[determining] dance steps corresponding to the content of [a] media sample” and even generating “a display of the dance steps on the HMD.”
