Google Glass Laser Keyboard: will it further fuel patent wars?. The upcoming Google Glass, a wearable attachment for glasses, or a stand alone device for those who don't wear regular glasses, has some interesting new possibilities. In the old days, when you didn't have paper, or didn't want to lose her number, you took out a ball-point pen (does anyone still use them?) and wrote the number on the palm of your hand. With the laser keyboard, just look at your hand, and air type it. It will be stored in Google, and you won't lose it in the shower. And, you can have sweaty hands without fear of smudging a digit. The smudged phone number digit has been the central plot line of some really bad movies. Don't smudge your digits. But, I digress. I see many uses for the laser keyboard that comes out of your glasses. How about pointing it at a teenager's forehead, and typing something like: "Remember to take out the garbage"? Please note that this post has totally ignored the question whether this thing will further fuel the patent wars. I am so sick of talking about the patent wars that I am on patent blogging strike.
