Google Patents Douchey Gesticulations

Chris Welch, for The Verge:

The patents outline an entirely new way of controlling Glass (or any other wearable computing device); one that tracks a user’s hand gestures in an attempt to understand what’s important or significant. One example cited puts a physical spin on the ubiquitous “like” action used across social media. Google’s patent shows a user framing real-world objects with a heart-shaped hand gesture. Using its built-in camera, the wearable device would then analyze the framed content and intelligently “like” the highlighted object or location.

Great. I can’t wait until the world is overrun with idiotic douchnozzles pointing their thumbs at everything. Kill me.
