Microsoft patents 3D projector tech for Xbox 720

A new Microsoft patent for an “environmental display” has popped up on the internet, showing the company’s concept to introduce projection technology into the next Xbox.

The idea is that the Xbox 720 and next-gen Kinect cam will essentially turn your room into the gaming environment.

This would be done with the use of a 3D camera (Kinect 2), which would detect the users’ position in the space, and the entire scene could be viewed in 3D by using “suitable headgear, such as active shutter glasses configured to operate in synchronization with suitable alternate-frame image sequencing at primary display and environmental display.”

Previously, a Kinect Glasses technology patent emerged, which is once again mentioned in this new patent. The use of this technology with the Kinect Glasses could essentially allow players to interact with 3D holograms within their room.
