Ever wished you could project your screen onto a cliff face or any other uneven surface? Nintendo may have the answer for you one of these days. According to a new patent the company has filed, it could release a projector for uneven surfaces sometime in the future.

Of course, it is just a patent. That doesn’t mean it could be coming anytime soon, even if Nintendo wants to go for something different when the NX arrives.

Speaking of the Nintendo NX, it’s currently scheduled to release in March 2017. Rumours indicate a reveal within the next few weeks but that’s unconfirmed till now. Trial production for units has apparently already begun with 10 million units expected to be manufactured annually according to recent reports.

What are your thoughts on the recent projector patent though? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more information on Nintendo’s business in the coming weeks.

    How can they patent such a thing when Microsoft patented the same technology years ago.

    Anyone remember that virtual room thing that used projection and the Kinect to make an entire room look like a game? That projection system also took uneven surfaces and different depths into account.

    Eventually it evolved into Holo lenses because a HMD makes more sense than projectors but there is still prior art and parents related to exactly what Nintendo is doing here..someone asleep at the patent office again or did Nintendo license some Microsoft technology and make tweaks to said tech then patent those additions?
