Just as Google Glass hits production, they win yet another design patent. Yesterday, the US Patent and Trademark Office granted Google a design patent for a "wearable display device." Although design patents are barren wastelands when it comes to actually delivering details about the particular design in question, the principle of what is actually patented is clear. Only what is within solid lines is patentable. Everything else is technically a sideshow. In this case, the wearable display device is relating directly to the arm that will likely connect to the frame of a future pair of prescription glasses.

Google's Senior Industrial Designer Maj Olsson and Joseph Heinrich are the inventors of this design which was originally filed August 2012 and published yesterday.
