Nearly every day brings another rumor of what the next Google Glass will look like. This one isn’t really much more reliable than any of them, but it is at least a Google patent.
The company got a patent last week (9,195,067) for a lightweight visor with a flexible headband that can articulate at the ear, the temple, and the back of the head for precise fit and positioning. What’s tricky and apparently patentable is that the headband is hollow (to allow for wiring) and touch-sensitive (to allow for control).
Will this find its way into actual products? Only Google knows — and maybe not even them.
