What if the palm of your hand will work as a keyboard? A Google patent aims to turn the skin on your palm into a virtual keyboard.
It describes a Google Glass-like receiver that beams an interactive virtual keyboard directly onto a personality’s palm.
A camera within the receiver tracks the movement of the fingers to grasp that keys are being ironed before feeding the data to an internet site or an app.
The patent was filed in June 2012 and was awarded to GOOGLE.
The present application discloses systems and ways for a virtual data input device, in one example, the virtual data input device includes a small projector and a camera.
In the virtual keyboard, numbers can be allotted to an index, whereas symbols can be allotted to a finger.
Alternatively, letters can be premeditated across the fingers and palm from high to bottom.
Users would then use their thumb to “press” the varied keys on each hand.
The projector may be mounted on an arm of a try of eyeglasses and also the camera is also mounted on an opposite arm of the eyeglasses.
The users may watch videos on the palm of their hand instead of having to carry a tool before of them.
