Huawei published a new patent for foldable AR Glasses design
Huawei has just published a new patent for foldable AR Glasses design entitled “a kind of AR glasses” in China. According to new information, this patent can enable the folding function, and reduce maintenance costs as well as the size and weight of AR glasses.
In the current scenario, several tech makers are working continuously to innovate something interesting in the field of AR or Augmented Reality. Back in February, Huawei secured a patent for AR glasses to fit on different head sizes with publication number CN111338082A.

According to the patent description, the glasses consist of a frame and a waveguide lens mounted on the frame, and the first connection part is provided on the frame corresponding to the waveguide lens.
The temple assembly consists of a temple body, an optomechanical module, and the mainboard module, and the mainboard module is arranged on the main body of the temple. The optical-mechanical module consists of an optical-mechanical main body and a second connecting ap optical-mechanical main body.
The optical-mechanical main body is connected to the connecting end. The temple body is away from the free end. The assembly of the temple and the mirror frame pass through the first and second connecting parts.
The rotation connection enables the temple assembly to be switched between the folded position and the open position. In the open position, the mainboard module can control the optomechanical’s main body to project the image beam into the waveguide lens.
In the embodiment of the current application, the optomechanical module is separated from the frame. The optomechanical module is set independently and used as a part of the temple, which facilitates disassembly, and reduces maintenance costs as well as the size of glasses. The folding function can be realized, and at the same time, the glass can be folded.
Huawei patent reveals gesture recognition for remote control devices
Huawei patent technologies are awesome and recently, the Chinese tech maker has received a new patent that could allow gesture recognition for remote control devices.
China’s patent office published a Huawei patent with application number CN115812188A on March 17, 2023, while it was applied on August 6, 2020.
Details show that Huawei has filed this patent for a brand-new technology that would allow a device to perform recognition of gesture movement to control another device that is remote-controlled in real-time.
In action, the patent provides a method and a handheld device for remote interaction with a second device. It includes apparatus identification to the second device from a plurality of devices based on a user’s gesture.
When a user makes gestures, motion sensors sensing the motion of these gestures can generate signals that can be processed by rule-based and/or learning-based methods. Processing of these signals may be used to identify said second device.
In order to improve performance, the user may be prompted to confirm that the identified second device is the device that the user wishes to remotely control. Processing of these signals may also allow a user to remotely interact with the said second device.
Currently, Huawei has not revealed any plans to adapt this system to real devices but we can wait for that in the future.

Huawei tech can generate dynamic user avatars based on actions
Huawei has recently patented an amazing technology that can generate user avatars dynamically based on the user’s actions. This seems something different than the already available avatar creation feature.
China’s patent office has published a new Huawei patent with application number CN115810072A, which was applied on December 6, 2022. The patent is titled “method, device, equipment, medium and program product for generating avatar”.
According to the patent details, Huawei phones with this technology could generate dynamic avatars based on the user’s action or motion. Thereafter, it could provide a more vivid and personalized avatar to improve the user experience.
In more technical detail, the technology contains methods, devices, equipment, media, and program products for generating avatars related to the computer field.
The provided method includes determining motion data of a virtual skeleton corresponding to the motion of the user based on an image of the user, the virtual skeleton including a plurality of feature points.
The method also includes determining a set of geometric structures corresponding to a set of target feature points among the plurality of feature points based on the motion data, and generating a dynamic corresponding to the user’s motion by adding the set of geometric structures at the set of target feature points.
Currently, this actions based Huawei user avatars generating technology remains on paper but since it’s published today, we can see its use in future released devices.
This Huawei phone camera replacement tech got me wowed
Huawei is world-renowned when it comes to camera technologies and a recent patent tech has caught my eye because of its unique phone camera design and replacement capability.
According to the information, there is a new patent for electronic devices and their casing of decorations as well as covers. However, it directly aims at the camera module and customizations.
Here’s the abstract of this patent, which presents an application that relates to the field of device technology and discloses an electronic device, a cover decoration, and a rear cover itself.
Before we look into the details of the action, let’s check the key parts, for that you need to look into the graphical representation (below). These are marked with both text and numbers.
The casing decoration (10), internal decoration (11), and decoration (11) include a sealing part (111), and the sealing part (111) is used for sealing and attaching to the internal surface of the casing (20) so that the rear part of the inner trim and (11) is sealed state relative to the outer shell (20). The outer trim (12), and outer trim (12) are arranged on the outer side of the outer cover (20), while the outer trim (12) is detachably connected to the interior components (11).
Now jump to the compound of these parts and how they help the end user to customize the Huawei smartphone camera.
You get to change the aesthetics of the smartphone. Meanwhile, the user needs to replace the exterior accessory of the phone, which is detachable and improves the user experience by making it easy to replace.
Since it is not necessary to detach the housing of the main camera module, the additional equipment or accessory cover of the outer camera could ensure air tightness.
This phone camera replacement technology patent reflects the experiment of Huawei with its gadgets. This could provide easy portability by adding extra customization. Also making a place for additional capabilities such as a better lens and zoom.
For now, we’ve not heard anything about the implementation of such tech in smartphones but we’re here to give you a follow-up.
