Sony has just recently filed a patent that hints of its plans to continue the development of a head mounted display that will most likely be a Google Glass competitor.

The patent application is in relation to a device that is built on a traditional glasses frame with actual pop-up displays placed behind the glasses’ lens and features two displays along with ear buds mounted on little arms. The patent doesn’t reveal any information on the type of content to be displayed, although it does state that the device will have a 2D interface.

The screen will also be movable by several millimetres, which will allow the user to adjust and fine tune the placement of the device.

Wearable technology such as HMDs and smartwatches have recently made tech headlines for the past few months with most people dubbing the development of such devices as the new frontier in consumer electronics. However, Sony’s recent patent application is not something new to the company. In fact, this new patent is just a continuation of patent filed in 2008 and 2009 that deals with a similar product.

Nevertheless, it seems that we’re going to be seeing more of these products in the very near future, especially with big names such as Google and Sony working hard to make the technology mainstream.
