Will Microsoft Compete with Google Glass in 2014?


While the bars and restaurants begin banning Google Glass before it’s even released, rumor has it Microsoft is going to compete with a similar project in next year. Named “Fortaleza” Microsoft’s augmented reality eye wear device has been revealed even earlier than Glass was announced.

If the rumor is true we are going to see a competitor for Google’s device which is a logical step for Microsoft as Samsung and Apple are also getting into the wearable computing. Samsung is about to release a smartwatch and Apple has the iWatch project. So obviously Microsoft wants to be relevant in this space too and offer something to the market. Granted it’s just a rumor, seeing as other companies already have similar devices in development, it’s natural to expect Microsoft to do so as well.
