Microsoft gets ready to take on Google Glass

Microsoft gets ready to take on Google Glass

Microsoft is desperately working towards giving Google stiff competition in the augmented reality section by collaborating with partners to create“web-connected eyewear” that would serve as a Google Glass competitor. Rumors are going around that Microsoft is testing prototypes and “has asked several component makers in Asia to supply cameras and other key components for eyewear prototypes.”

A few months back, Microsoft tried its hand with other “beyond the television” gaming experiences such as Illumiroom, however the technology was too expensive.

But for the time being, the Microsoft eyewear remains a rumor. Other companies like Sony said that they would be testing a headset of its own, and other recent competitors include the soon-to-be-4K Oculus Rift and the CastAR system from ex-Valve employees Jeri Ellsworth and Rick Johnson.


And this is what Microsoft is up against — Google Glass


Our two cents — We feel that the Illumiroom is a device that will alter your gaming experience in a way that you’ve never seen before, if it ever comes out that is. On the other hand, Google Glass is something that is going to revolutionize the consumer electronic space and integrates well with your everyday life.

We’ll keep you posted on the latest on this and much more….
