March 21, 2012 via KurzweilAI.net -- Patent Bolt has discovered that Microsoft has been secretly working on a video headset since September 2010.

A New Microsoft patent reveals that they've been working two styles of headset: an aviation styled helmet aimed at Xbox gamers, and one that resembles a pair of sunglasses for use with smartphones, MP3 players and other future devices.

In the patent., Microsoft states that a compact display system may be coupled into goggles, a helmet, or other eyewear. These configurations enable the wearer to view images from a computer, media player, or other electronic device with privacy and mobility. When adapted to display two different images concurrently -- one for each eye -- the system may be used for stereoscopic display (e.g., virtual-reality) applications.
