In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Microsoft Patents Projector Tech For Xbox 720

Posted on Tuesday, September 11 @ 11:20:53 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

At this point, I'd say it's safe to assume that Microsoft plans to launch its next console alongside the some sort of Kinect 2.0. Up until now, all we've really had to go on were a handful of rumors and speculation based on old patents, but now a new patent filed by Microsoft appears to fill in some of the missing pieces.

A few months ago, when we first got wind that the company was planning on implementing some sort of Kinect-enabled 3D glasses (dubbed Fortaleza), we knew Microsoft had something a bit more ambitious up their sleeve, but thanks to the discovery of a new "environmental display" patent (courtesy of Patently Apple), the company's newfound direction is becoming a bit more clear.

According to the patent (via CVG), this new projector-based tech is said to display an entire 3D world all across your gaming space, and will supposedly be visible while wearing the Kinect glasses. This "immersive display environment is provided to a human user by projecting a peripheral image onto environmental surfaces around the user. The peripheral images serve as an extension to a primary image displayed on a primary display."

Sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie. Count me in!
