    Sony and Oculus can't have all the fun amirite? According to some rumors floating around, Microsoft has been filing for patents for AR type wearable tech to be used with the Kinect and Xbox platform.

    Sorry for all the formatting as I'm posting the news from mobile. But what does everyone think about this? Personally id favor the use of AR type glasses over a full friggen headset engulfing my face so I'll certainly be on the lookout for these.

    Mmm, big difference between AR and VR devices. One is the main screen, the other supplements it. Grouping them together is kind of confusing.

    I just happened to read just yesterday that in order to keep their working technology a secret, innovative companies tend to register far more patents than they're ever going to use (and TBH, that's nothing new either). So that really isn't saying much.

    Also...it's kinda strange that I have to mention this, but...microsoft does more than just xbox stuff. Even if they're really going to make them, it's not said that it'll be for the xbone.

    AR is one of those things that is fun as a novelty for maybe half an hour, then it's like meh; enough.

    MetaPro says otherwise.

    Could Microsoft shatter Google Glass?

    No, no, probably not, but at least this competition should be fun to watch from the sidelines.

    Then MetaPro is wrong.
