Through Let's Go Digital, a patent was discovered in August that describes a device similar to Nintendo Switch but for virtual reality. Even Let's Go Digital has produced some images that suggest the operation of a possible equipment of this kind.
As we can see from the pictures, the VR kit seems to fit the Nintendo Switch, being used in manual mode in conjunction with the console. However, there does not appear to be any type of headband or headband. If so, this mode of virtual reality seems to be impractical.
Imagine a VR headset with the controls on the side that you have to use to play and hold the headset at the same time. This design is reminiscent of Virtual Boy, Nintendo's first virtual reality console, known to have been a tremendous design and functionality failure by the company.
Importantly, these images are patent-based concepts and do not represent any end product from Nintendo. In any case, it is interesting to know that the Japanese gaming company is considering betting on virtual reality and increasing the capabilities of its console.
Currently there is the Nintendo Labo VR kit
Continuing its line of card accessories, Nintendo has the Labo VR Kit, with 6 different designs based on virtual reality. They are the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Bird, Wind Pedal and Elephant.
Each of these card modules can be built to interact with different virtual reality applications within the Switch. However, this patent we mentioned should be a more robust accessory dedicated to playing full games, just like PlayStation VR.
