Foxconn is one of the Apple’s key supply chain partners. It is now being reported that Google recently purchased wearable technology patents from Foxconn. However, the move is understandable given that Foxconn is also the manufacturer for Google Glass.

Normally, intellectual property rights are owned by American tech companies, where different new products are envisioned. However, in this rare case, an American company namely Google, went all the way to an Asian manufacturer and purchased intellectual property rights from it.

Neither of the two companies have revealed the financial details of the deal but we are sure that it must have raked heavy. The exact patent that Google has bagged as a result of the deal refers to a head-mounted display which can super-impose virtual images over actual-world view.

Google has already kickstarted its Google Glass into a beta mode, with limited units rolled out to a select number of users. However, the company has all plans of carrying forth the product and making it a mainstream computing device in the coming days.

It may be that the search giant has now scooped the patents from Foxconn in order to preempt any future legal issues when it goes for a worldwide launch of Google Glass.
