A Microsoft patent that surfaced last week has fueled more speculation around the company's interest in smart glasses.

The patent reveals plans for augmented reality glasses that combine facial recognition with voice commands, seemingly ideal for multi-player gaming (not a Google Glass competitor). The drawings depict sensors on the front and sides, which would supposedly collect information like eye tracking.

Rumors about Microsoft's plans for developing glasses began swirling last year after a leaked 56-page document from Microsoft reaveled company plans. But we didn't hear word about the augmented reality glasses again — until now.

Microsoft has not released any further information.
