Google have found themselves with a new patent that would see a tiny laser attached to a device to project out a virtual keyboard onto a surface, or better yet, on to users' hands. This might not be too surprising, but it would be perfect for one device: Project Glass.
According to the patent, the Mountain View-based search giant would use the system with Project Glass which would help those sporting the wearable computers input text into situations where voice control or voice input can't be done, such as an elevator or bathroom. Google see users projecting out a keyboard, keypad or graphical UI directly onto the palm of your hand - imagine the possibilities!
We're only talking about a patent at the moment, so this could all disappear, or materialize into something incredibly intuitive from Google. It could change, everything, again.
