Microsoft Planning to Combine Mixed Reality with Smartphones

However, Microsoft is not the only company thinking towards working on improving MR, VR and Augmented Reality (AR) experiences and mix them up with future smartphones

Microsoft is planning to combine smartphones with improved Mixed Reality (MR), a new patent filed by the company indicates, a report said.

In the patent, Microsoft is talking about the different input methods that could be leveraged when combined with smartphones to allow users to interact better with the virtual environment, web portal MSPoweruser said in the report on Thursday.

“The Virtual Reality (VR) experience may allow a user to interact with virtual objects in the experience. Various input devices for facilitating such interaction exist, such as hand-held controllers that provide translational and rotational input,” the report quoted Microsoft as noting in the patent.

Along with taking inputs from the phone, the software giant has highlighted the idea of expanding phone features by adding MR overlay

“The VR experience may represent a representation of the input device that visually displays the device and also provides a user interface for interacting with the device and the VR,” the patent reportedly added.
