Samsung does it again what it does best: Copying Google Glass Now.

Samsung Copy Google GlassAccording to a recent article, a patent filing shows Samsung Electronics is working on a device it calls sports glasses in a possible response to Google’s internet-connected eyewear. A design patent filing at the Korean Intellectual Property Office shows a Samsung design for smartphone-connected glasses that can display information from the handset. It said the glasses can play music and receive phone calls through earphones built into the eyewear’s frame. It also gives hands-free control over the smartphone.

Reminiscent of the Google Glass design, Samsung’s sketch shows a thumbnail-sized display over the left eyeglass. Google’s eyewear has a tiny display over the right eyeglass that shows information and websites.

Samsung filed the application for the eyewear design patent on March 8.

And Samsung did not respond to an email and a call seeking comment from the media.

Interestingly, blatantly copying tech innovations and creating products has been Samsung’s legacy…and it’s working for them as well. Recently Samsung paid almost a billion dollar to Apple, but made much larger volume of sale with its copied products….

All the best Google…I would be eagerly waiting to know how much you end up with as a compensation.
