There have already been reports of a much cheaper (and far less functional) competitor to Google's Project Glass, but this is the first we've seen about a likely real competitor from a major company. Microsoft has filed patent applications for its own version of Project Glass...

Look like google is the only one with fresh idea. What happened to apple and microsoft?
Even samsung innovate faster than those two despite having to confront lawsuits from both ends.

This was not Google's idea its a concept long pending and I remember one used in a mission impossible film by Tom.

Then star trek should own all apple design patents.

i dont think this is innovation now... just a copy! but still a good product!!! competition is good! so that more and more innovation and modification!

And Google copied this idea from military helmets and films.
Almost all things are inspired by something and competition is always good for the consumers.

And pretty soon they will start to sue GOOGLE like Apple will. But Google is the only one that actually have a WORKING PROTOTYPE.
