Move Over Google Glass. Here’s Sony’s!

“Watch out, Google. A recently published patent application reveals that Sony’s head mounted display glasses are progressing down the evolutionary path rather nicely.

A patent published in the summer of 2012 shows a futuristic device — it looks like something from a made-for-TV sci-fi movie.

This is, after all, just a concept.” Read more. You can also read more about the eyewear here.
