Google Patents Heart Shaped Hand Gesture, Will Let Glass Wearers ‘Like’ In Real Life

As Google Glass comes into its own, we are sure to see interesting and new ways to interact with the wearable tech. A new patent granted to Google is looking to bring hand signals into the fray, beginning with a heart. Aww.

The patent depicts a heart-shaped hand gesture, which will presumably be a quick and easy way to like an image while using Android devices such as Google Glass.

We’ll have to wait and see how Google incorporates these gestures into their tech, and what gestures they will patent next.
