Microsoft brings Smart Glass to the table
On Monday at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in LA, Microsoft expectedly introduced SmartGlass. What was not as expected is that it might be better than we thought, with potential to not only compete with, but potentially surpass the Apple AirPlay. So what exactly is SmartGlass? It is an app, but not just any app. It is an app that will bring your TV, your gaming console, your smartphone and your tablet together.

SmartGlass connects all of those devices to make content engrossing on multiple levels. Your individual devices don’t have to ignore each other, they’ll work together to entertain you more. Microsoft also showed how a gamer could use a tablet as a separate playbook while playing Madden on the Xbox. Even further, Microsoft will finally bring Internet Explorer to the Xbox, with SmartGlass turning your phone into mouse. Sure, it’s silly to surf the web on your television with an old and gray keyboard and mouse setup—unless the keyboard and mouse are your phone and tablet.
This is just the beginning and the opportunities are endless. We can’t wait to see how Smart Glass evolves! Take a peek at the clip from E3 below.
