Rumors Continue Regarding Sony’s Patent For A Possible Virtual Reality Headset
Sony may be bring Virtual Gaming to the living room
In May of 2013 Sony filed a series of patents for gaming technology. These patents centered around an audio system and head mounted display. Since the announcement of these patents, rumors have been flying throughout the gaming community that Sony is making the push to fully incorporate virtual reality gaming into the Sony brand, and integrate it into the concept of accessible household gaming.
The source of the rumors is really based on the specific language contained within these patents.The head mounted display patent apparently called for “motion detectection and image stabilization” which implies that a functional aspect of the headset will be to absorb images from the environment, and adjust the image projected at the viewer according, while adjusting for viewer motion. The logical leap isn’t too far to make here.
More rumors have flown around, comparing Sony’s virtual reality headset to Oculus Rift, and that there was actually a secret preview of the tech at TGS 2013. Time will tell on this one.
