Samsung Patents A Stylus With A Camera
A new patent from Samsung shows off what could be a Note stylus with a camera built in, something we may see on an upcoming version of the Note smartphone.
The patent in question talks about a camera with the ability to optically zoom built into the end of a Samsung Stylus with the ability to be controlled wirelessly from the phone or tablet its connected to.
This would allow users to take the stylus out of the phone, place it somewhere then get themselves positioned in the frame which they would be able to see on the device.
Along with the wireless abilities, an optical zoom would fit well in this device due to the depth it could take advantage of, something requester for optical zoom.
There is no guarantee that this feature will ever make it into a Samsung phone, but its an interested look at what Samsung is researching and maybe someday we will have access to on our smartphones.
