    I don't get it...
    A pair of glasses that has a bunch of sensors to collects data so you can invite someone to a multiplayer match o_O?

    And what's with the AT&T logo?
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    If it didn't seem like a "wtf idea" at first, the AT&T logo, finished it off lol. I hope someone can weigh in on what the hell this is actually going to be useful for.

    I'm definitely not anti-tech. Maybe you can give us some insight on what this is going to be used for.

    The invite example is just basically saying invite will only pop up on you headset not the tv. This patent is just for the invite section. They are saying you can basically just say your invite. "fear do you want to play call of duty" and it would pop up as invite on your headset.

    The rest details the HMD (head mounted device) pretty much as we all thought it would work. Augmenting reality through oled glass's.

    Im far from being anti-technology, but fine. Ill rephrase my initial post.

    It sounds like a head mounted display (because that's never been attempted) with voice recognition (that new tech. Man its awesome) and camera sensors ( more new technological advancements)... So you can vocally invite people to multiplayer matches...... (OMMFG, You mean I can ask a question, and people can answer me back and it shows on my screen? THATS SIMPLY AMAZING)

    Better o_O?

    I haz the leaked document.

    According to the document, these kinect glasses are going to be pushed heavy by MS in 2014. They're banking a lot on these glasses being a success.

    1.Kinect Glasses: New glasses delivering ambient experiences
    2.New Xbox Embedded SKUs (Phone, Tablet)

    1.Kinect Glasses + Band (Living Room)

    1.Kinect Glasses creates “Screen Zero” Transscreen experiences

    Can it display things on the lenses?

    How cool would that be for ace combat?

    I'm all for new technology but this seems plain retarded, I know this may not even make it out ever but I don't see why would people want to spend money on useless glasses, I certainly wouldn't care about a pair of glasses that will help me invite people and track their player info.
