While Apple and Samsung’s smart glasses are still shrouded in mystery, the ever-exposure of new patents reveals that there is also fierce competition in the field, with each manufacturer trying to develop more attractive new technologies. Samsung’s smart glasses appear to have gained inspiration from smartwatches, according to a patent released by The Company on July 15.
The eyeglass’s interface looks similar to the Tizen operating system on samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active 2 and can be controlled by touching a border.
While it’s not always a good thing for these tech giants to reserve patents, which aren’t necessarily applied to Samsung’s first smart glasses, it gives us some clues about how Samsung’s smart glasses will look.
According to media reports, Apple may be preparing a proprietary augmented reality operating system, allegedly codenamed “Project Starboard.” Samsung’s solution could be a litthion version of the Tizen operating system, which offers a selection of applications, including smart home control, music, information, and more that control the virtual world without compromising real-world attention.
The industry has speculated that Apple’s smart glasses may be controlled by gestures, but it is not known. And Samsung’s navigational controls by touching the border may bring new viable answers.
