Is Nokia planning to bring its own version of “Google Glass”. It already has a patent in place.

[embedit snippet=”adversal5″]

We already know, how innovative Nokia is and it has patents for nearly all major current and upcoming technologies. Irony is in many cases, others have gone ahead and launched products based or related to Nokia’s patented technology and have reaped rich returns, before even Nokia could use them :P.

Anyways, if a Nokia patent is some indication, Nokia may have already worked on its version of “Wearable see-through display” and got a patent for the same. Yup, we haven’t heard anything from Nokia about plans for such kind of product, given there priority is smartphones for now. So, what we know for know as example of such technology is “Google Glass“.

The patent in question is titled, “Method and Apparatus for controlling the visual representation of information upon a see-through display“.

So, this patent talks about how, a see-through display can be used for presenting a visual representation of external information (Image, video, news, feeds…..) and the user can at the same time see this external information and also his / her surroundings optically. So, it is pretty useful for “Augmented reality” purposes e.g. “Livesight” of Here Maps. Though the use of such see-through displays is not limited to AR only.

It also talks about how See-through displays can be embodied in various manners, like head-worn displays, windshields and visors or any other display surface which can be used to display external information.

Though, this technology is relatively new and Nokia may not have immediate plans to actually launch such a product. But, if it proves its potential in future, which seems likely to me at least, then may be Nokia can enter the arena with full force as it already has such technology in place!!

    This still shows how powerful the Nokia Patent Portfolio is. Who knows what other secret patents they have. At least they have begun taking action with lawsuits against those who have used their technology. Quite impressive if you take account that Microsoft and Huawei could possibly start a bidding war for Nokia sometime in the next few weeks/months.
