Today all the tier 1 companies are coming up with great ideas to innovate the world. Unique technology brings innovation and all of the top brands around the world are doing their best to give their consumers the best experience of their product in ways they might not have thought. To keep technology like this proprietary, these brands buy patents of their ideas. When a unique idea is in the concept phase, these patents are granted so that I cannot be copied.
Google always creates great concept ideas, most of them remain a concept and are not brought to the consumer market. Recently Google was working on a great idea which is related to Pixel smartphones and pixel book. Google was granted the patent of this concept recently. We can actually see this idea becoming a reality. The description of this idea 2 fold.
Google Granted patent for a Motorized Laptop hinge that auto-aligns with a user’s face
There would be a touch-sensitive button on the lip of a laptop. It can trace someone tapping on it and then the lid will open using the motorized hinge. This would be a nice gesture, as lid opening is not a really fun thing to do while using a laptop. Secondly, different sensors along with cameras will be placed on this laptop which will not only identify the user’s face but it will also calculate the best possible viewing angle for the user and it will open the lid at that specific angle.
The idea of this patent doesn’t seem to be coming to the consumer market any soon but we can really count on it. Is it doable? Yes, looking at the pace of technology upgrades these days, we can actually see this kind of technology coming to the consumer market soon enough.
