Apple is exploring the possibilities of a head-mounted display in the form of glasses, according to a patent found by Patently Apple earlier today.  The patent application reads:

“There is a need for an improved head-mounted display system, particularly a system that temporarily integrates or merges both mechanically and electronically a head-mounted device with a portable electronic device”

As a result, Apple proposes a set of glasses to throw your iPhone in (…yea, we thought the same thing and NO, it isn’t an April Fools’ joke).  Actually, Apple did in fact hire a Senior Prototype Engineer for wearable computing just over a month ago.

All we know is…this doesn’t look like an Apple-designed product.  Wouldn’t you agree? “Concept” below…
