Google patent application sees Glass type device producing holographic images for the user
With the possible use of holograms, the content called up by the Glass wearer could interact with the background seen through a lens mounted on the device. According to the patent application, "with augmented reality the viewer’s image of the world is augmented with an overlaying CGI, also referred to as a heads-up display."
The application also gives some real-world applications for the patent. For example, it would "permit a pilot to see vital flight control information without taking their eye off the flight path. Public safety applications include tactical displays of maps and thermal imaging." And of course, gamers would get a new thrill.
The patent was filed on March 28th 2014.
