Report: Microsoft To Reveal Its Virtual Reality Glass For Xbox At E3 Next Year

Microsoft Glass Patent

Recently, we covered a key patent Microsoft filed for its eye-wear. According to last year’s leaked Xbox documents, Microsoft was expected to reveal their AR glasses for games this year. We didn’t hear anything from Microsoft on this front at E3, and it was assumed that there is a possibility that the project got delayed due to some reasons. Few months back, WPDang reported that Microsoft’s augmented reality project is currently put on hold. According to their sources, the issue is related to patent licensing. The key patents related to Kinect sensor are limited to their current purpose and cannot be used for these glasses.

Today, DigiTimes reported that Microsoft is planning to release their VR glass for Xbox gaming in 2015 and the product is expected to be revealed at E3 in June. Obviously, Microsoft hardware team that designs Surface is also working on this wearable device.
