Microsoft Granted A Patent For A Transparent Camera
Recently we told you that there are many largest technological groups that control and dominate the ranking of the most valuable companies. This table will represent the most significant and those that have the greatest value.
The tech giant Microsoft is near the top of this list and is predicted to be worth more than $1 trillion, the first to break through this mythic barrier.
However, recently the tech giant Microsoft has been granted a patent for the apparently impossible thing, guess what it could, of course, a “transparent camera.”
Sounds pretty amazing right a “transparent camera,” the patent is only for housing, the cover for the lens and sensors which restrict stray light from hitting the sensor and interfering with your image being recorded, but which the tech giant Microsoft notes forms the most of the assembly.
However, the trick is that the camera sensors in which the tech giant Microsoft is interested are only for recording the infra-red or ultra-violet light, which is used by the “Windows Hello” face identification feature.
What is most absurd is the patent which was granted by the tech giant Microsoft will simply use a camera housing which will be transparent to visible light and dim to infra-red light. So, this would make the cameras less visually impertinent when used in near eye displays like used in the HoloLens headset or other VR headsets.
If we observe, then it is clearly visible that the camera could be pointed towards the eye which will be used for eye tracking. Next, the pointed outwards will be used for range finding and environmental sensing.
So, this is just one of the HoloLens patents which insinuate that the headset is the subject of deep research and development of the tech giant Microsoft for which the tech giant Microsoft will definitely achieve the sweet fruit for this work in the next version of the headset which is expected to arrive at the end of 2017.
