Google has filed a pair of patent applications that show off what seems to be a small wearable aimed at initiating actions in video conferences via gestures. One patent is for the wearable itself, and the other is for the system that will power it and translate gesture actions made with the wearable into actions in a video conference. The wearable would be secured to a user’s wrist, similar to a smartwatch, and would pick up on the user’s hand motions and other gestures via a bevy of sensors. These gestures, according to the other patent, would be used for both predefined and customizable actions.
