Samsung has come up with a new design for a head-mounted display (HMD), and the patent application was published by the US Patent Office the last day. It was filed in the US in Q3 2018.

The new design is, in all probability, related to an improved Next-Gen Gear VR Headset.

Samsung’s patent application outlines how the new design would surpass some of the existing negative aspects of the current designs. It mentions the problems associated with existing HMD designs and, by and by, provides solutions to those problems.

Samsung Next Genration VRWhile a visual field perceived by an individual would be around 200 degrees, conventional HMD devices offer stereoscopic regions in both eyes, i.e., the angle of view is about 100 to 200 degrees- that is quite narrow. This causes the sensation of limited vision in the player while playing high-level application video games containing 3D elements. It would give the impression of viewing through a periscope, thereby limiting the feeling of being in virtual reality (VR).

Samsung has designed its new HMD devices in such a way that it can optimize a face shape in order to achieve an ultra-wide angle human viewing angle in a slimmer form factor- this reduces the burden of weight, too!

Samsung’s new HMD design possibly includes:

  • a curved display
  • a frame with a curved mounting surface upon which the curved display would be fitted
  • a pair of optical assemblies provided on the left and right sides of the interior of the frame

These features, if included, would provide a 180-degree viewing angle and surround the entire visual field of the user.

Moreover, the new design boasts of a see-through function, much like Google Glass, that would act like regular glasses, through which the user would be able to see the real world, of course, with the addition of AR images onto them.
