  • After setting up to deliver the world’s first high tech glasses, the Project Glass, Google will now recreate the cool Smart Glove from Minority Report, or at least that’s what one of their recent patents seems to indicate. The search engine giant has just been granted the patent for Smart Glove, that consists of a few sensors, cameras and processors.

    It also has memory and networking abilities and I see as a way of input and interaction with a 3D interface, if I were to speculate. I can’t see it making it to the mass market, but rather to a specialized niche. Among the applications that may involve the Smart Glove there are actions in tandem with the Project Glass glasses, with gestures such as zooming in on a augmented reality canvas. There’s also the idea of interacting with a holographic interface, like Tony Stark does in Iron Man.

    The video below, a showcasing of technology demonstrated by MIT Media Lab assistant research Pranav Mistry seems to fit what Google is thinking about. The search engine giant may work along the same line demoed at TED and give us the tools for new input and interaction, leaving behind voice control, keyboards and mice.
