HOT EYEWEAR: A patent filing shows Samsung Electronics Co. is working on a device it calls sports glasses in a possible response to Google Glass.

WHAT'S IN THE FRAME: Samsung says its design shows smartphone-connected glasses that can play music and receive phone calls through earphones built into the eyewear's frame. It also gives hands-free control over the smartphone.

WEARABLE TECH: Google is testing an early version of Google Glass with 10,000 people in the U.S. The early version can take pictures, record videos, navigate maps and works without a smartphone. Other tech companies are also exploring ways to bring mobile computing to watches and glasses.
