What would the Google Glass project look like if Microsoft got its hands on it? A new video shows exactly what it would be like.
The Google Glass project is an attempt to bring Augmented Reality (AR) to the masses via a pair of active glasses that you use to view a "heads up" display of useful information. The project has provoked a lot of humorous responses on YouTube and elsewhere.

Some of the others concentrate on the physical comedy of wearing a "heads up" AR display, but the one we liked most really seems to know its operating systems.
The characterization of what a Windows AR system would really be like is so accurate that I bet you can't avoid trying to close some of the alerts...
