Samsung may have lost the game in astroturfing but the latest reports present a different picture in other matters. The South Korean conglomerate is working on its own version of Google Glass. The wearable glass technology is currently under construction.
It seems that virtually every Tom, Dick and Harry is busy manufacturing a smart watch or a Google Glass variant in this age and time. Apple’s iWatch and the Pebble watch are examples of the former while the latter has its perfect facsimile in the form of Samsung’s latest patent. The patent filed by Samsung belies the fact that its engineers and experts are busy tinkering away at its new wearable technology a la Google Glass.
Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch was already revealed last month. Now its Eyeware wearble device is much alike its smartwatch in descrition. This Korean Killer Device is more sports and health-oriented than the Google gadget. And the funny thing is it bears an uncanny resemblance to the original version built at the Google Lab too.
A picture of the slated device was dug up from the archives by The Wall Street Journal. It has built in microphones which allow the wearer to listen to music anytime anywhere and take important phone calls too. Thus whether you are a jogging or working out in the gym you can avail the special services of this smart and suave technology.
WSJ reports according to a patent, “This design is of a type [of glasses] with earphones integrated, allowing [users] to take phone calls and listen to music during workouts,” filed by Samsung earlier this year.
The only environment in which it may not function is a swimming pool since it isn’t waterproof. Spokespersons at Samsung were not ready to comment any further regarding the Galaxy Gear. A curved screen smart phone is in the pipeline too, so Samsung has a lot to look forward to in terms of profitability and growth.
