Next time someone wearing Google Glass winks  in your direction, they might not be flirting with you - instead they could be  taking a photo.

In the latest software update for the  wearable technology, users can now take photos by winking in the direction of  the object they want to photograph.

The device’s built-in camera registers the  movement of the eye to take the shot and to make sure this movement isn’t  mistaken for a blink, the wink will need to be exaggerated to register.

  

WHAT NEW FEATURES HAVE BEEN ADDED TO GOOGLE GLASS?

As part of the December software update,  Google Glass wearers can now take photos by winking.

The device’s built-in screen and camera  registers the movement of the eye to take the shot.

To make sure it’s not mistaken for a blink,  the wink will need to be exaggerated to register.

Google announced the feature could one day be  used to pay for goods or to wink at pages in a recipe book, to make the  instructions appear on the screen.

Other updates include uploading YouTube  videos straight from the gadget.

Users can now see Hangout conversations on  the screen and +Google Music Play subscribers will be able to control playlists  through Google Glass.

There is also a lock screen to prevent people  from accessing the device without permission.

Google announced that the iOS app is ready  but won’t be available until a later software update. 

Google added that the feature could one day  also be used to pay for goods, or to wink at pages in a recipe book and make the  instructions appear on the screen.

As Google explained in a blog post announcing the update: ‘Glass is about helping you  look up and experience the world around you without getting bogged down by  technology.
