Microsoft has announced the Xbox & Windows 8 SmartGlass. What is it? When does it release? Come find out! The technology allows users to sync their entertainment viewing across multiple devices. Users can begin watching a movie on their tablet or smartphone, pause at any time, and resume on their Xbox when they get home.
Microsoft also showed how content creators can use Xbox Smart Glass to display complimentary information on their smart phone or tablet alongside their television. Examples include watching Game of Thrones on your television and having a realtime map on your phone or tablet updating character's positions as they move from city to city throughout the episode.

Game developers will also be taking advantage of Smart Glass. An example from Halo 4 was shown. Players will be able to see their in-game stats on their tablet, updating in realtime, without need to access an in-game menu on their TV. Examples of Smart Glass integration into sports games were also demoed, including drawing up and selecting plays in Madden NFL.

Xbox Smart Glass launches this fall on Windows 8 and Xbox 360.
