Microsoft patents virtual gaming glasses for Windows Phone and Xbox


Patentbolt have uncovered a Microsoft patent for a head mounted display which would allow gaming on the move or at home.  The display would be painted with lasers which would could simulate a stereoscopic image of 21 inch size at arms length, and would still allow users to see their environment in the periphery.

Originally filed in Q3 2010 and published by the USPTO on the 15th March 2012, we of course do not know if this will in fact turn into an actual product, but it would be a pretty cool accessory to accompany a Windows Phone, especially if that phone also had Kinect capabilities.

Minority Report – here I come 😉
