Canon announced in June an augmented-reality platform using head-mounted displays. Sensics was showing off its SmartGoggles 3D gaming headset in January, and Sony announced a head-mounted 3D visor for movie viewing last August. Other companies such as Microvision have also been talking up head-mounted displays since at least 2000.

With all this interest in head-mounted display technology it makes you wonder if the next patent war won't be over the smartphone you carry in your pocket, but a computer device hanging off the end of your nose.
