It's just a patent folks, it means fuck all for Xbox VR plans or lack of. Their R&D team, probably working on hololens, came up with this and for all we know it might just be patented to lock it away.

Could even be a patent troll.

Would be funny MS entering in court to process someone that sell the product and they don't have a VR on their console, no VR game, no mat, etc...

A ventilation device for different kinds of airflows and smells would be a good addition to VR for being immersed,smelling grass ,pine trees together with a slight breeze would be nice while "walking" in a digital forest.

Its nuts you can patent something you never even want to try to make a product out of.

Would be sad to see one of the richest companies in the world, abuse the patent system for a quick buck.
That wouldn't be funny, it would be greedy and a sad showing of the reality of how broken certain systems are.
