Rumors of Samsung developing Google Glass-like headwear have been running rampant for months now, and it finally appears that we have some confirmation on the device. A recent patent filing has been spotted by The Wall Street Journal that depicts a very Google Glass-like pair of glasses which are being called "Sports Glasses."

Samsung filed the patent earlier this year in Korea and was recently granted full registered status on the device. The accompanying description states that the glasses will be compatible with smartphones and will feature a pair of built-in earphones. Interestingly enough, while Google's project Glass is completely wireless, the Samsung version appears to feature a wired connection that would run down the users back and connect to the smartphone via USB.
