While head-mounted displays are nothing new, LG has patented a novel method for utilizing them that might grab your attention. The patent states that when you’re staring at content on a device like a tablet, the HMD is inactive. But turn your head or the device away and that same content will automatically fade into view right in front of your bespectacled eyes. According to the filing, the noggin-strapped contraption is set to buzz as it switches displays and there’ll be a slight transitional pause when viewing video. While we’re betting virtual reality goggles and Google-branded headgear might prove to be a touch more popular, this is at least a lot cooler than passive 3D clip-ons.

Just in case GPS and GLONASS didn’t make for enough of an acronym soup, BAE Technologies would like to add another to the navigation broth. NAVSOP (Navigation using Signals of Option) utilizes several of the fundamental concepts we understand from cell tower triangulation and WiFi location-finding to lock down a position, but goes much further to geolocate from close to anything that pushes out a signal, such as neighboring radios and TVs. It doesn’t even need to understand exactly what kind of signal it’s examining, and it can easily get its position in locations there’s no GPS to work from, whether it’s in an urban canyon or the natural kind. BAE is most excited about the customers of ending GPS jamming against soldiers and UAVs, conclusively: not only is the new modern technology mainly impervious to attempts to impede its signal, it can make use of the jamming effort itself to get the position fix. Luckily, the company’s roots in defense aren’t precluding use for civilians, so there’s a possibility that future smartphones may never ever have to make use of guesswork to obtain their bearings– offered that federal governments worldwide sign off on the concept, that is.
