New Sony PSVR Patent Illustrates Head-Mounted Display With Wireless Data Transfer Capabilities
Sony is not only expected to release the PlayStation 5 (the name hasn’t been confirmed yet so we will stick with this name for now) sometime in the future but is also expected to release a new VR headset, PlayStation VR 2 (PSVR 2), as well.
For this article, we will be focusing on a recently published Sony patent that illustrates a PSVR headset that has a “head-mounted display” with wireless data transfer capabilities.
The Sony VR Patent
A Sony patent was published on April 4 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. As we’ve already mentioned earlier, it illustrates a PSVR headset that has a head-mounted display with wireless data transfer capabilities.
To be more specific, the Sony patent details a VR headset that comes with slightly more space between the goggles and the users’ face to allow prescription glasses to fit comfortably in the headset. In addition to that, it also describes a new graphical rendering technique known as “foveated rendering” which allows consoles and computers to generate massive digital worlds far more effectively. And lastly, in regards to the wireless data transfer feature, the patents mentions that all data could be transferred wirelessly from the console to the headset.
Will We See This Feature On Future PSVR Models?
As we always mention in our previous articles regarding patents, they don’t usually serve as a 100 percent guarantee that the concept design depicted on the patent will be featured in future products. Nevertheless, they do provide a glimpse of what the company, who submitted the patent, are doing and planning behind closed doors in so it’s interesting to see.
