United States : OVER $100 Million invested by Microsoft in Wearable Tech.
As per to Osterhout Design Group (ODG) founder Ralph Osterhout, the Big M has invested a hefty chunk of change into ODG's wearable computing technology. In fact, TechCrunch reports that Microsoft "has paid up to $150 million to buy IP assets related to augmented reality, head-borne computers, and related items."
Microsoft's recently selected head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, has approved that the company has been looking into VR, so this investment sure seems like a logical move. Expectantly we'll hear more about the Big M's plans for virtual reality in the near future.
