Facebook may be to blame for turning the word Like into a verb, but Google is set to take this a step further.
According to a new patent filed by the internet giant, Google wants its Glass wearers to like brands, products and locations simply by making a heart shape with their hands.
A camera on the headmounted device scans and recognises the item being liked and stores its details in a list of favourites, which can then be shared.

The patent is called 'Hand gestures to signify what is important' and was made public on Wednesday.
