A recent patent application that was published with the USPTO earlier on today, shows that Microsoft could be working on their own Google Glass rival, described by Microsoft as something a little less ambitious but even more purpose driven, which they believe will be the case due to the included tool that has been design to view live augmented events whilst viewing something like a football match or cricket game the glasses would show information such as live scores, game/ player data etc.

Microsoft described it with the following:

A computer implemented method providing supplemental information to a user with a head mounted display viewing a live event, comprising: receiving an indication that a user is attending a live event, the live event having an event duration; determining a field of view of the user through the head mounted display, and objects within the field of view at the live event; retrieving supplemental information describing at least the objects in the field of view of the user during a portion of the live event; determining elements of said supplemental information to present to the user in the head mounted display; and displaying the supplemental information in one or more display elements in the head mounted display.

What do you think, which looks better Google Glass or Microsoft’s live event glasses?
