According to the Financial Times, Google may be working on yet another wearable computer in addition to Google Glass: a smart watch similar to the ones Samsung and Apple apparently have in the works. A patent application filed by Google in 2011 describes a watch with a “flip up portion” that includes a top display when open that acts as a supplement to the base of the watch, which presumably also includes a screen. In addition to the flip-up portion, the watch would also include a touchscreen display and a camera as well as the typical mobile device drivers like a processor and “wireless transceiver.” Google makes specific note that the flip-up display would be concealed when the watch is closed.
