This has nothing to do with a silly design patent, it's an idea to use augmented reality on a device which attaches around your wrist like a watch and that can deliver information to you... much more specific than "evenly rounded corners on a black rectangle"

If Google does not patent their tech then Apple will stole that and patent it.

So, till the company like Apple exist it is better to get patent your innovation.

Cool concept! This can really prove useful in Navigation, especially while walking. Would be perfect if it includes NFC or bluetooth. Just load in your destination from your phone and you're ready to go!

I think it might have to do with investigation of prior art.

The glasses should use augmented reality to put a watch on my wrist. I shouldn't need glasses AND a watch.
