There have been some rumors swirling around the news lately about Apple potentially going into the AR market as well and that gave birth to the Apple Glass which is said to come with some high-tech and spectacular features which will make it really interesting.
There is a new patent which got revealed showing that users of the Apple Glass might be able to control the device using their eyes which if true would be a true breakthrough for the company as well as the tech industry at large.
According to many reports, the eye control feature is said to take a big part in the Apple Glass and controlling vary from eye movements, blinks and stares. The patent also said “a user uses his or her eyes to interact with user interface objects displayed on the electronic device. The techniques provide a more natural and efficient interface by, in some exemplary embodiments, allowing a user to operate the device using primarily eye gazes and eye gestures (e.g., eye movement, blinks, and stares).”
There also reports hat the device could be touch sensitive allowing it to take input like tap and wipe and could also support the company’s AI voice assistant, Siri. There is also the possibility of user being able to zoom into a scene or an object by merely staring at it for a few moment as this input method will automatically trigger the zoom feature and bring the object the user is looking at much closer to them.
The features are just patent which doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be on the actual device but if the reports and rumors are true and can be found on the marketed device, it will really be a breakthrough for the company as well as enhancing the prospect of the AR market in general.
