Could the future of gaming look differently if this latest Microsoft patent points out. This is a patent of a gaming helmet that apparently uses lasers to project virtual images in front of each eye.
According to the patent, it suggests the lasers project images in front of each eye and the projection image itself could be as big as 21-inches in diagonal length with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The device also includes controller 16, which controls the internal componentry of the projectors in order to form the virtual display images.
According to PatentBolt “As the human eye can’t focus on images less than a few centimeters away, a compact display system may be configured to provide the display image as a virtual image–e.g., an image formed in a focal plane located more than a few centimeters from the eye. One challenge in this field is to form such an image using a compact, robust optical arrangement, which also provides suitable image resolution and fidelity“.
