Google's Glove-Based Patent
Touch and gesture continue to provide an alternative method to search, along with voice. Similar to Microsoft's gesture technology supported through Kinect, a glove-based patent assigned to Google tells us that motion will become the next frontier for the search engines. The glove-based patent suggests the possibilities of conveying information through hand controls. The patent's claim describes a glove that detects a series of images in an environment, which could support a virtual, or augmented, reality application.
