The document, dating back to August 2010, shows Microsoft’s shift in focus from gaming platform to the living rooms media and gaming hub. While the promise of PVR functionality, Kinect 2, low power modes, and increased hardware specs are all exciting, the most intriguing piece of information is regarding Fortaleza. Fortaleza is not just a pair of glasses that enable viewers to see 3D content. They also function as VR system to bring content into the user’s environment making a much more immersive experience. While the document shows that these are planned for 2014 (after the 720′s 2013 holiday release) and initially being powered over WIFI, future plans indicate power and functionality of 4G cellular connections. Could Microsoft be going after Google Glasses?
