Google has applied with the US Patent and Trademark Office for a new technology that will allow users wearing Google Glass-like device get information about objects within their line of vision, International Business Times reported.
Titled “Self-Describing 3D Object Recognition and Control Descriptors for Augmented Reality Interfaces,” the technology will “provide for the detection and recognition of target devices by a mobile computing device”, the patent description said.
According to the patent, the technology can only work for objects “within a pre-defined local environment”.
It means that it will work in locations where Google Glass already has the information for every object that is there.
According to media reports, Google may also be testing the next version of the Google Glass called GG1.
Google has a new eye wearable device in the works under the latest US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) filing, which “might just be a new Google Glass”, Droid Life reported.
The FCC tests electronic products to ensure that they are safe for human contact.
Google withdrew the eye-wearable device from the market in January this year but reports said that the US tech giant was planning to come up with a different version of the wearable headset.
