Google has released a new over the air update this week for their innovative eyewear in the form of the Google Glass XE17.3 update. Which brings with it a number of enhancements including an experimental eye movement notification control feature called Notification Glance.
Notification Glance has been designed by Google to enable Google Glass users to use subtle eye movements to see notifications. Enabling users to simply point their eyes towards the Google Glass display to see any recent notifications that may have arrived.
Last night XDA Recognised Contributor TheManii posted a link to a Google Glass XE17.3 update, provided to him by psymin, which includes the new Notification Glance feature.
Unfortunately the new eye movement sensing technology hasn’t yet been rolled out to general use and will not allow you to capture photographs or navigate through the main Google Glass menu system.
However as you might expect if the testing of the new Notification Glance technology goes well with users, Google will undoubtedly roll out support for the feature across other functions within their Glass eyewear. Allowing Glass Explorers to reduce the amount of head movements they need to make whilst navigating certain functions whilst using the eyewear.
As more information is released by Google about their new eye sensing technology and its further roll-out across Google Glass functions we will keep you updated as always.
