The notion of wearable computers is not something new and has been around for quite some years. But when Google actually unveiled its own Google glasses prototypes, the world was quite amazed. Without a doubt, wearable computers can be the next big thing in the tech world. Does this mean Apple is also eager to jump this bandwagon?


According to reports, Apple has been interested in the whole concept of wearable computers as far back as 2006. In 2008, Apple filed a patent for an iPod video headset display. And now, Apple has been granted two new patents which are directly related to similar devices.

Does this mean that Apple may be indeed working on something like ‘iGlasses’ to contest Google Glasses? Google is expected to reveal the developer release of Google Glasses in 2013. So from the looks of it, Google already is leading the way.

However, Apple can be a game-changer if it is able to turn its patent into reality. This is because the patents Apple has filed speak of a Google Glasses-like device that makes use of a Retina display. So while Google may come out with its glasses sooner, Apple can have the advantage of using an ultra-high quality display in its own device.

Once the wild popularity of tablets and smartphones diminishes, the tech users will naturally be looking for something more mobile, lighter, and easier to carry and more connected with the web. And wearable computers have all these features. Thus, it is only natural that tech giants want to be a part of it.
