The future of Apple Watch in the end will become like? According to Apple's latest patent application, the patent describes in detail a method that can trigger the automatic exchange of information between two wearable devices, and triggers the automatic exchange of information in such a simple manner that we can use as simple as a wave or fist gesture.
According to the US Patent and Trademark Office published information, Apple "gesture-based information exchange between adjacent devices" application is a comprehensive application, the patent is actually want to achieve two adjacent smart wearable devices , Can get a simple and safe way of data transmission, which of course also includes the Apple Watch smart watch.
Specifically, Apple expects users to trigger such data transfers through a simple and intuitive interface, just like the old iOS application Bump, the system works by detecting user gestures and then activating customizable data sharing propagation processes .
In some specific examples, we can see that the first user to contact with another user, we can shake hands, hugs, back to back, fist collision and other gestures to activate the data transfer operation. These gestures are defined as & ldquo; natural & rdquo ;, that is, we usually use these actions in their daily lives. Of course, you can also choose according to their own characteristics, some other gestures.
In the process of using, we certainly need to compare "deliberately" start our gestures, after all, we need to make the Apple Watch sensor can recognize, and do so to avoid too simple gestures, in crowded space Will stimulate the data transmission.
As for the sharing of information, Apple noted that the patent supports any form of digitized data that can be sent over a wireless connection. Such as contact information, photos, media files, calendar events and so on. In addition to locally stored information on wearable smart devices such as the Apple Watch, the method also allows data to be extracted from the iPhone or cloud.
Of course, Apple has also considered a number of security protocols and filtering programs to ensure that the correct information is passed to the right people. For example, if the user happens to be working when considering the location of the shared session, the function simply sends work-related events and contact data to the receiving device. It is said that, in addition to sharing data, the function can also generate data for sharing on a social media network.
However, taking into account user privacy and data security issues, Apple in a short time should be less likely to use this technology to Apple Watch body, the analyst pointed out that Apple wants to use the device to the patent, they must first establish A gesture database, and more importantly, they need an AI to make decisions.
