As with all things new, exciting, and innovative it’s wise to protect your new creation via the
much-loved, needs-to-be-revamped patent system. Google is doing just that with its Project Glass glasses that are in the works. Apparently there is enough packed into these glasses to make Google wary if imitators and a patent would surely help in preventing others from copying their looks. Plus it could gear Google up for yet another lawsuit down the road should Apple decide to come out with a pair of tech-filled glasses of their own. While we have yet to see an exact release date one thing this shows is that the project seems to be moving right along.
