We have seen an array of Google Glass alternatives, with some being far better than others, as it would seem that some rival units seem to be far cheaper and so are more comical. However, there are companies out there that take the wearable display very serious, and Lenovo is just one of them.
Lenovo has been lured into the whole Google Glass saga, and why not seeing as though they are a very proficient company for making tech products. In an effort to show how serious they are about coming up with a device to rival Google Glass, they have just applied for a US patent for something that is not dissimilar to Google Glass.
It is obvious that something like this will not be able to look very different to Google Glass, as there is only so much you can change with its design. However, it is certain aspects of the design that can be changed, just like this Lenovo patent.
It will have two screen, touch-navigation and most importantly, improved voice commands. How this upcoming Google Glass rival improves voice commands is by using a bone-conducting microphone that is placed just above the bridge of your nose and takes noise-canceling to a whole new level.
This technology would mean improved voice commands because the mic will just pick up on your voice and none of the other outside noises.
We cannot be certain if Lenovo will be awarded this patent, but it certainly is an interesting one.
