Samsung has recently dived into wearable devices, such as the Galaxy Gear smart watch. Samsung has now been approved a patent in South Korea for a Google Glass type of eyeware for the FitBit generation.
The device will have a forward projecting camera onto a small screen, with in-built earphones and a curious micro-USB link.
According to the patent filings, Samsung describes the device as:
This design is of a type [of glasses] with earphones integrated, allowing [users] to take phone calls and listen to music during workouts
It is expected that the device will be tethered to a smart phone via Bluetooth and project information and notifications on the lens of the glasses.
The initial emphasis seems to be on a workout bent, but future generations of the Samsung wearable electronic eyeware could have all sorts of possibilities.
