PayPal Granted Patent For Augmented Reality Payments


Have you ever bought a product only to get home and see that the batteries were, in fact, not included? Or maybe you bought that cool looking shelf from IKEA only to find that the on paper instructions make little sense leaving you a frustrated mess amongst cheap wood and screws. These are the kind of frustrations that plague consumers on a daily basis, and are ones that PayPal may be looking to solve, according to a recently granted patent. Filed in January of this year and granted last week PayPal’s patent, titled Augmented Reality View of Product Instructions, details a methodology for displaying pertinent information about products including reviews and needed accessories as well as an end to end solution for purchasing those products directly through the system.
