    Sony's Virtual Reality Head Mountable Display system Patent.

    New Sony Head Mountable Display system Patent appears online for what is sure to be the rumored PlayStation 4 Oculus Rift rival. The HMD will also use the PlayStation 4 Eye for Augmented Reality & motion tracking.

    You can check out the patent drawing below.











    HEAD MOUNTABLE DISPLAY SYSTEM

    AbstractA head-mountable display system comprises a head mountable display having a frame to be mounted onto an observer's head, the frame defining one or two eye display positions which, in use, are positioned for viewing by the observer. The frame comprises one or more shutters for obscuring the observer's view of the surrounding real environment and a display element mounted with respect to each of the eye display positions. The display element provides a virtual image of a video display of a video signal from a video signal source to the observer. An object detector detects the presence of an object within a detection range of the observer's head. And a controller controls operation of the head mountable display so as to allow the observer to view at least a portion of the surrounding real environment in response to detection of the presence of an object within the detection range.

    Nice already have the cam, I'll be waiting for the HMD. The only downside to all of this is that I where eye glasses! And I don't feel life fiddling with my contacts just to play games (which tends to dry up from my lack of blinking lol), same with 3d Glasses

    You don't need glasses or contacts when wearing something like this. Just adjust the focus. Same reason why you can use binoculars or a telescope without them as well.

    I can't wait until the headset goes to retail, I plan to jump all over one once they do! I could see Sony incorporating the lightbar into the headset for additional motion tracking, I am hoping since they love independent people and developers so much that they are working with Oculus to bring their tech to the PS4, they deserve a lot of credit and recognition for what they have done so far!

    Unlike their crazy DRM patents, I hope they make this one a reality.

    Talk about out of left field.... Most patents are filed just for the sake of it. If it was a real product, the patent is filed way before a product makes it to shelves. Usually years before.

    I think the Oculus Rift will be a big hit and it will end up making it's way to consoles.

    I guess you haven't researched.

    In keeping with previous rumours, these patents list two Evolution Studios staff members as the inventors, who happen to be 3D/stereoscopic/simulation specialists. They were filed in May 2013.

    Posted about this before but Sony introduced a stereoscopic 3D goggle head set with head tracking for endoscopic surgery this year. It is about $15,000. It isn't totally immersive because it allows the surgeon to see the real operating theater by glancing down.

    Sony Introduces Head-Mounted Display for Endoscopic Surgery
    It would seem that surgeons will quickly notice the advantages of this display system over the one for the Da Vinci surgery robot, also stereoscopic 3D:


    It's kind of strange how so many people are raving about the Occulus when it is using a cheap optics combined with some GPU distortion to overcome the limitations.

    Sony has a couple new patents that seem to address these limitations and also hinting at something coming for the PS4, hopefully for a lot less than $15K:
