Project Glass just the beginning of the VR experience as Google patents smart glove
This probably does not come as much of a surprise when you think about it. From “Johnny Mnemonic” to “Minority Report,” the virtual reality environment seems to need the ability to navigate and “see” with our hands.

Google is on the same page, and was issued a patent called, “Seeing with your hand.” Naturally this would entail the use of gestures or relative motions which would not only control the Project Glass appliance, but other visual tools, devices, or even act as a visual aid itself.

There is a whole new batch of possibilities coming with this. How long do you think it will be before we see it at Google I/O?

Someone need to research on how Apple fell from grace the last time, and ensure it happens again...A company trying to create a monopoly through lawsuit should not be around.

Isn't Project Glass technically augmented reality, not virtual reality?

Haha, I loved Minority Report. Can't believe Google actually got this patent. It's great. Let's see this tech in near future.

I'm just hoping that this doesn't end up like the NES Powerglove.
