Samsung patents a flying display that's controlled by your eyes

Samsung patents a flying display that's controlled by your eyes

The drone's flight speed and direction can be controlled by moving your head, eyes, or hands, and the unit can also automatically track users without any additional gestures. There is a flight control unit along with a necessary power source, gyroscope, accelerometer, motion sensor, GPS, obstacle detection and a more local Wi-Fi-based positioning system. The patent also mentions a "joint manipulator" that will be used to change the inclination of the drone's flight path. The unit is not limited to a quad-rotor shape; it can be reconfigured to different forms. Samsung might be about to take that to a higher level. The patent shows a unit that features a display at the center with four propellers on each corner.

The display device will be carried by drones and it will also include a voice recognition and vibration system.

There are also joint manipulators and propellers that can change the thrust direction. Samsung's idea is for a flying display drone, that you can control with your eyes and voice. Its cameras and other sensors could allow for gesture tracking, or even using gaze or pupil position to figure out what the user is watching and what aspect of the screen they would like to interact with. The solid lines in the illustrations of the patent are the claimed features.

Samsung has filed many odd and unique patents, only this year it was announced that the tech giant is looking to develop a tablet with a roll-out screen that would retract into a canister when not in use and held in place by magnets.

Drones have captured the collective imagination of enthusiasts and companies alike in the last few years. They include those that can self-destruct in an emergency. Companies often file patents for defensive purposes to keep their competitors from "stealing" their ideas. A screen that scans people's faces and flies directly into their line of sight sounds a little like the physical manifestation of an internet pop-up ad, except that it would really be in front of you with no way to close it (aside from a well-timed karate chop).
