Augmented Reality


Don't laugh: Next-generation Augmented Reality shades will be the show-stopping centrepiece of Microsoft's Xbox 720 offering.

Described in Microsoft's leaked 720 files as "Kinect Shades", the unique peripheral will allow several players to view moving augmented reality images simultaneously. Theoretically, with Kinect communicating with the shades, player positions can be identified and thus multiple people can see the same moving AR image from different viewpoints.

The Microsoft document claims the device will be a "breakthrough in heads-up and hands-free devices".
