Microsoft Google Glass

We all know that Microsoft is planning for its own Google Glass like wearable device. WSJ today reported that Microsoft is already testing some prototypes of such device. Few months back, a Microsoft patent revealed some info on such wearable device.

A computer implemented method providing supplemental information to a user with a head mounted display viewing a live event, comprising: receiving an indication that a user is attending a live event, the live event having an event duration; determining a field of view of the user through the head mounted display, and objects within the field of view at the live event; retrieving supplemental information describing at least the objects in the field of view of the user during a portion of the live event; determining elements of said supplemental information to present to the user in the head mounted display; and displaying the supplemental information in one or more display elements in the head mounted display.

Also there was a report last month that Microsoft is in talks with Osterhout design group which makes Google Glass like device for military.
