Chinese search engine giant Baidu has applied for a new patent that allows users to tuck away message notifications by blowing on them, according to data provider Qichacha.
Users blow into the phone, and the phone can put away hovering message notifications after recognizing the sound of the blow through the earpiece, the patent description shows.
The patent description says this design will be used on programs, information display, and human-computer interaction.
The design is creative. If high accuracy can be achieved, it will be extremely practical.
There are many game apps that use this kind of technology, and it is not clear where Baidu will use this technology.
