Sony challenges Google Glass with its Smart eyewear

A patent for interactive glasses has been filed, but no technical details are available yet

On March 21 Sony filed a patent with the United States Patent Office for a model of Smart glasses that is very similar to Google Glass which, according to Google, will replace a remote control


The "Head Mounted Displays" designed by the Japanese company will carry the latest version of Jelly Bean in its Experia tablet S and the design is in fact very similar to the Big G glasses, but nothing has been revealed with regard to functions.


It is clear from the patent that the project is not dedicated exclusively to video-gamers and therefore it will not be only a support for the new PlayStation 4. No hardware component has been described yet, but it is likely that the choice of the Mozilla and Firefox OS operating system for a future smartphone could also apply to this project.
