We have known for a long time that Sony is working on a new version of PlayStation VR. Everything indicates that the company has plans to exploit virtual reality on PlayStation 5; however, it seems that he wants to do it with an improved device.
The company has not revealed anything about the arrival of virtual reality to its new console, but a recent patent indicates that it does indeed prepare a VR headset with various implementations to improve the user and gaming experience.
THE NEXT PLAYSTATION VR WILL HAVE NEW TECHNOLOGY
According to a report by LetsGoDigital, Sony Interactive Entertainment filed a virtual reality-related filing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in mid-2016. The agency accepted the patent yesterday, November 24, 2020.
The purpose of the registration is to explore and promote the comfort of using virtual reality and augmented reality viewers. The technology used would be in charge of Steven Osman, director of Magic Lab, Sony department dedicated to the development of new technologies.
The patent indicates that the possible new PlayStation VR will feature an LED light and 1 or more haptic feedback generators, technology already present in the DualSense, PlayStation 5 controller.
Also, a sensor that could be pressure or movement is mentioned to determine if users are using the device correctly. On the other hand, an image shows a much simpler viewfinder, suggesting a decrease in its weight.
The record reveals 2 possible models, one with a kind of headband and the other with a design more similar to conventional lenses. However, the media reports that Sony’s patent is related to the operation of the device, not its design.
Another interesting detail is that the new PlayStation VR would be compatible with PlayStation consoles and computers. The device would have built-in speakers on both its left and right sides.
As we mentioned, Sony has not confirmed anything for now about its plans for virtual reality on PlayStation 5.
