Microsoft patent points to augmented reality glasses

Could be looking to take on Google's Project Glass.

How in the FLYING **** do they think they can get a patent for an AR display? The patent is for "A system and method to present a user wearing a head mounted display with supplemental information when viewing a live event". As opposed to a non-live event? The whole point of AR is to overlay information over the real world (i.e. 'live'). I bloody hope this application gets rejected, because it is neither new or novel in the slightest.

I feel I ought to elaborate on my comment now!

The idea of having the extra overlay at a sports event is pretty cool. AR replays!

Can they demonstrate a functional prototype that actually works as the patent states? If not, the patent should not have been approved.

Clever lawyers suing the hell out of each other and they can't even think about patenting, as others have said an idea that's been around for decades.
