Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo files new, interesting patent

 

What is it?

New dedicated handheld 3 13.64%
 
New way to utilize multiple Switches 10 45.45%
 
Nothing. It's just a patent. 9 40.91%
 
Total:22

This is sending chills down my spine. I predicted this years ago....I even said something about it to someone here a few weeks ago. If I had access to my pc I could show everyone a concept image I drew in ms paint with S. Miyamoto's photo cut and pasted to it as a mock up.

 

I've made some pretty good predictions in the past but this takes the cake because it's almost identical to what I saw.

For anyone who knows about pcs and technical things I have a question. Is there a way to prove a documents date of origin? If I could show you guys the pic I made (very similar to these patents) back in...I want to say 2011... it would be pretty cool. I would really like to show this one off.

And to answer the polls question...if my intuition is correct...you're looking at more than just a blueprint/patent...you're looking at the future of gaming.

So you're saying this could be more than just linking Switches together? Possibly a new piece of hardware?

Yes.

I read the article and theories of what you stated and if thats the case then...I'm going to look stupid. Lol.

But if it's what I think it is...you're looking at what I would call encapsulating interactive device that could theoretically be an alternate or fully replace vr. 

I think there's more to these patents. Mine had a projector.

We're talking MR without a headset...basically.

If you look at the image of a character it shows that it's not flat on the screen...I think there's a sign of AR/MR.

Sounds awesome! That would be revolutionary

Can that really be executed viably with current available? It does sound like something Nintendo would go for though.

It absolutely would be.

And usually Nintendo tries to make their hardware affordable, it'll be interesting to see what price point something like this would have.
