Google Glass Could Teach You How To Dance

The new Google Glass

WASHINGTON — Got two left feet? Don't worry, Google Glass could teach you to dance by identifying songs and suggesting moves in real time.

Google has filed a patent to create a system by which Google Glass can recommend dance moves to those who wear the high tech device.

"The content identification module may provide information associated with a content of the media sample, such as identification of the song and the dance, to the wearable computing system," the patent reads.

"The wearable computing system may determine dance steps corresponding to the content of the media sample and may generate a display of the dance steps on the HMD (head mounted display)," it reads.

That means Google Glass will have an ability to determine what particular song is playing in the background before suggesting dance moves from a possible library of moves stored in its database, 'Tech Times' reported.

The device may also show the user a video of other people dancing to the same song in order to help the user understand what moves they should be doing.

Google chairman Eric Schmidt recently affirmed Google's commitment to the device and the technology behind it.

The initial research programme for Google Glass, called Explorer, was scrapped, but a new unit specifically devoted to the device is currently active.

"It is a big and very fundamental platform for Google. We ended the Explorer programme and the press conflated this into us cancelling the whole project, which isn't true. Google is about taking risks and there's nothing about adjusting Glass that suggests we're ending it," Schmidt added.
