    Microsoft patents gaming helmet for Xbox

    Microsoft patented two styles of video headsets in 2010: an aviation-styled Gaming Helmet for Xbox gamers, and a pair of sunglasses for smartphone and mobile device users.Patentbolt unearthed the patents, which were filed in Q3 2010 and published by the USPTO early this year.
    An image from the patent, as grabbed by Patentbolt.

    The images produced by Microsoft's eye-wear would be 16:9 and "appear to the wearer as if it were 21 inches in diagonal and viewed at arm's length".
    Each eye of the video headset could be configured to produce a stereoscopic 3D image. The viewing area may also be slightly transparent to allow augmented reality projection on to surrounding objects, like toilets.

    Note that the pictures accompanying the patent are illustrations of ideas and not prototypes.

    The central part to this patent is Microsoft's "virtual-image projector", which uses "a laser configured to form a narrow beam, first and second dilation optics, first and second redirection optics, and a controller". Not a controller as in a game pad.

    The rest is a bit complicated.

    Sony has already built a Personal 3D Viewer visor that fits over your head and pumps images to your brain with two tiny OLED screens. Sony reckons it will "revolutionise" games.
    Being saved up for the Xbox 3?

    Why on earth did they use a toilet for their description, is that the best they could come up with?

    The viewing area may also be slightly transparent to allow augmented reality projection on to surrounding objects, like toilets.

    Sadly this is what gaming is going to eventually become. A bunch of gimmicks.
    It's funny that in this day in age people can steal as long as they have a reason too. Even if that reason is created by the thieves themselves.

    Shame about the 21 inches at arms length viewing distance. Will be interesting to see what comes of this. The AR could be interesting.

    LOL that's exactly what I was thinking when I was reading the OP. My wife wouldn't let me hear the end of it if I wore that.
