Xbox One Augmented Reality Glasses Patent Information Leaked

It appears that Microsoft is taking a leaf out of Oculus Rift and Google Glass’ book because a patent for an Xbox One Augmented Reality Glasses popped up. This was originally uncovered by a user at NeoGaf. The patent is codenaming the Xbox One Augmented Reality Glasses ‘Fortaleza’ which corresponds to previous leaks regarding the same.

Interestingly enough the patent just doesn’t convey the Fortaleza
Glasses technology itself but the information the Xbox One AR Glasses
will collect also. The first patent appears to show the view from inside an Xbox One AR Glasses and shows the data the Glasses will collect, implying that the data collection is itself included in the patent.

The patent-art also shows us that the Xbox One Augmented Reality glasses wont just be an overlay/output for games but an apparently true approach to augmented reality.
It can be seen on the Patent-art that two people are sword fighting
with the help of the Fortaleza Glasses and they are outdoors (Connected
to Xbox One via Wifi or 4G?) and the games being played are a hybrid of Augmented Reality and good ol’ Reality. The labels over the people inside the Xbox One Augmented Reality
glasses view and the menu also shows us that the Fortaleza glasses will
be a hybrid of Google Glass (AR) and possibly Oculus Rift.

The patent also features some pretty futuristic authentication and
control features, apparently you can ask a person vocally to a game and
the Xbox One Augmented Reality Glasses using techniques such as Facial Recognition, Voice Recognition, Depth Information, Eye- Tracking and other sensor information to accept and conduct the game.

Xbox One AR Fortaleza Glasses were always Microsoft’s Endgame for this Gen.

The old  leaked power point showing Xbox Ones roadmap predicted that
after the release of the Xbox One a Pay-TV Service would follow, after
which by 2015, the gaming scene would have evolved into Cloud Based
gaming with the Xbox One Streaming games to multiple devices and Kinect
Glasses a.k.a Fortaleza Glasses. However we are not sure how this
factors in with the Xbox Ones dismal launch.

If the technology represented by the patent is true then it will
truly revolutionize multiplayer gaming opening for the first time true
Hybrid-Reality Multiplayer scenarios. This would also justify the Kinect
compulsion for Xbox One.
