Technology companies such as Samsung file a large number of patents for products in development every year. However, very few of them make it into the marketplace.
A Samsung device would be following hot on the heels of the Google Glass -- a product that is still in its prototype stage but has already received widespread attention.
Google Glass is a wearable computer with a head-mounted display that lets users search the web, use apps and respond to spoken instructions. However, its most controversial feature is its ability to record video, an issue that has raised privacy concerns. A consumer version of Google Glass isn't expected to hit the shelves until early next year.

If Samsung's new patent turns into a consumer product, it will be the second wearable product that the company has produced. In early September, Samsung's first smartwatch was released, but the Galaxy Gear has since received disappointing reviews from technology analysts.
Despite the rocky start, wearable technology could grab vital revenue in the future as technology firms look to diversify away from a maturing smartphones.

Recent research by analysts at Credit Suisse calls wearable tech "the next big thing" and says the industry is set to grow from around $3 billion to $5 billion today to $50 billion within five years.
Meanwhile Samsung released earnings on Friday, reporting yet another record quarter but forecast weaker mobile handset shipments of 1-5 per cent in the fourth quarter.
