Sony has seen considerable success with its PSVR headset. If you were wondering whether the company has any plans to make a wireless version of its popular headset, there just might be hope. A new patent has been uncovered which suggests that Sony has given some thought to making a wireless PSVR headset.
The patent was published by the Japan Patent Office over the weekend and the images therein suggest that the virtual reality headset will be able to work without having any direct cable connection to a console. It will rely on a radio wave instead to communicate between the console, breakout box, and the headset.
Many PSVR owners will be happy to hear that Sony might be considering a wireless version given that the adapters and wires can often be too much to handle. The patent drawings suggest that the wireless headset won’t be all that different from the one that’s currently in use.
An untethered headset could even convince more people to splurge on the accessory if they had previously held off because they didn’t want to deal with the mess of wires. It’s pertinent to note here that Sony filed this patent around two years ago. The company is yet to confirm the existence of a wireless PSVR but this doesn’t seem like one of those far-fetched patent discoveries that seem outside the realm of possibility.
