Based on recent patent filings, Microsoft could be considering working on their own Augmented or Virtual Reality tech. The patent which was filed last year revealed some similarities with the Oculus Rift and Google Glass for how Microsoft's hypothetical VR headset would work.

Microsoft's version of the VR headset would be portable enough to allow users to interact with each other for multiplayer gaming sessions as long as they are located in the same general area.

"The multiplayer gaming headset would use voice recognition, eye-tracking, facial recognition, accelerometers, and gyroscopes, to allow players to engage in games with other users anywhere in the world ... providing that someone else in the area is wearing the glasses."
