Right now tech companies fight about the phone you use. The next battle could be over the glasses you wear.

Microsoft is working on a device that delivers information about live events to a person wearing a head-mounted display. One of the drawings included in Microsoft's patent application shows the device could come in the form of eyeglasses.

"The information is provided about actions and objects occurring within an event and within the user's field of view," the application says.

The Microsoft device would connect to a processing unit that you could wear on your wrist like a band. The processing unit would connect to the glasses either via a wire or using a wireless technology such as Bluetooth.
