Sony seems to be on a roll when it comes to being granted patents recently and its latest one could help change the face of VR, if anything ever comes of it.
This latest patent could mean when using VR you could soon be able to see what’s going on you, without taking the headset off. This would work thanks to a mix of audio detectors and a camera, which would be embedded on the front of the headset.
To be honest, we’d love this idea. Often I find myself bashing into walls, or ending up halfway across the room without realising.
Of course, this would mean a new version of PlayStation VR would have to release and hopefully, it would have some other innovations too, such as stopping motion sickness and of course, a cable-free experience.
But maybe we should just focus on one improvement at a time.
