Magic Leap Awarded Design Patent for Hat-Like VR Headset

Published by , June 13, 2016 12:48 am

(NorCalNews) Magic Leap was awarded a new design patent for an “ornamental design for a virtual reality headset” last week. The new patent images show a potential Magic Leap VR device which will apparently be bigger than the VR headsets currently available on the market. The possible Magic Leap VR headset will be more like a hat; and will thus be notably different from the head-strapped VR boxes which are sold by HTC and Oculus.
The spherical shell of the potential Magic Leap VR headset will apparently cover a large part of the wearer’s face. However, it is not yet clear whether the covering will be transparent – like the Google Glass – to enable wearers to see their surroundings while immersed in a virtual world.
