Google buys virtual imaging patents from Foxconn
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Google has bought virtual imaging patents from Taiwanese supplier Foxconn that could be used in its interactive "Google Glass" devices, according to a document acquired by AFP on Saturday.
No details were released on the amount of the transaction.
The patents relate to a technology that permits virtual images to be super-imposed over real ones, according to media reports.
They could be used in the interactive voice-activated eyewear being developed by the US Internet giant.
