  • GPS is becoming more and more a useful tool not only for finding the way around, but also including its potential in various applications. Those include a brand new patent from Google, one that may allow camera settings to change automatically depending on your position on the globe.

    This patent, if approved will allow one to fix photos and adapt settings based on local climate and your position: either indoors or outdoors. The white balance and saturation could be changed for a sunny day, while a rainy day will be received with the needed settings. Automatic settings are already common, but not adaptable ones like these.

    An improvement in Android photo software is welcome, especially after the lukewarm reception of the Android 4.2 camera UI and the 360 degree Photo Sphere, that could have been much better.
