Microsoft was late to the game in both the smartphone and tablet markets but the company is determined to not get left behind when it comes to wearable computers. Unnamed sources tell The Wall Street Journal that Microsoft is testing out multiple prototypes for a computerized headset that will be the company’s answer to Google’s Glass headset that the company will release next year. The Journal’s sources don’t give any details on how a “Windows Glass” headset might differentiate itself from Google Glass, although we imagine that it’s not the only wearable computer that Microsoft is testing out since Glass-like devices are seen as more of a niche product. No matter what, though, let’s all pray Microsoft doesn’t market Windows Glass by having an excited Steve Ballmer using the device while in the shower.
