The heart hand gesture has grown in popularity over the last few years. So much so that Google has now patented it! Apparently it will be used in conjunction with Google Glass to signal a "Like" of some kind.
According to the patent filing, that action would then transmit to a "head-mounted display" (presumably Google Glass, the company's Internet-connected spectacles), which could interpret the gesture, capture an image and then "carry out a particular action in response," like sharing the image via social media.
Isn't this weird? I mean doesn't it seem like they are going to far? Are they now going to start to patent popular sayings next???
