Google bought patents for wearable computer accessories from Apple's chief assembler Hon Hai Precision Industry.
The patents include those for "head-mounted display technology" for use in both video games and simulated training, according to Bloomberg News. The Taiwan-based Hon Hai reported the news in an email. No financial details were given.
A spokeswoman for Hon Hai told Bloomberg she didn't know if the patents would be used for Google Glass. A Google spokesman said in an e-mail that he didn’t immediately have any information or details on the Hon Hai announcement.
