Nintendo is seemingly having more robust plans of offering a VR headset to the users. Nintendo’s application for a patent at the Japanese patent reveals what the company wants to produce. The patent includes several detailed images showcasing a much more rugged design with an ergonomic shape for comfort.
The patent shows the VR headset is going to be robust and better than what we currently have in the form of Labo VR Kit for Switch. This simply brings the VR support for the Nintendo Switch to the children. There are several new DIY Labo kits that allow the children to learn with fun. They build and play with cool creations and the kit even lets you make your own quick play VR games using the programming tool. But perhaps, you can’t consider it as any serious VR technology that could compete against the likes of other existing VR headsets.
Looking at the patent, it now appears that Nintendo is taking a further step into the VR world by bringing a new and stronger VR headset. The new product will have a plastic version rather than the cardboard.
What is found inside the patent application, the suggested headset looks to be a more advanced version of the Labo which is not only different in design but may have better software side of things.
It has long been speculated that Nintendo will release a VR headset for its popular console. The utilization of its Switch by Labo Kit showed the seriousness of the company in the VR sector. And, now this new patent shows the company has more plans and it’s steadily making its humble position in the VR industry, though it’s not as competitive as other existing ones.
