Google has filed a patent detailing the use of bone conduction audio in a wearable-tech device.
A USPTO patent application suggests that Mountain View is planning to use bone conduction audio with its Project Glass headset. The patent describes how the tech might work with the headset and includes images seen in previous Glass filings.
Google Glass is an augmented reality headset that allows users to view information such as map directions and social media notifications through a head-mounted display. It also includes a camera with which the user can take pictures and engage in Google+ Hangouts.
While we can't be certain that the device in question is the company's much-anticipated wearable-tech product, it does look highly likely. The description details the inclusion of both a head-mounted display and optical elements, and even includes images used in previous wearable-tech patents from Mountain View.
