Virtual reality seems to be the next evolution of the games industry, with the likes of Steam and Oculus both putting money, time and research into perfecting the technology. Now it appears Sony are ready to enter that space too with a new patent turning up pointing to a VR device for the PS4.
The patent discusses the headset as a obstacle avoidance device, including a warning system should a person get too close to something. There’s also mention of the head mounted display creating virtual images on the screen within the visor.
This may be a little way off yet though, and developers will need a bit of time to get used to the kit before producing games for it, but it is possible we’ll see a Sony branded VR headset on the market within a few years. Wonder how much space will be required to use the headset and the cost, as I can’t imagine it being a cheap add on.
