Amazon recently showed an interest in using VR glasses to improve the video streaming experience. In recent years, VR technology has been used to enhance everything from fashion shows to campus tours. Now Amazon wants to incorporate the smart technology into its streaming service.
Although Amazon has not officially announced the details of its new move, the company recently acquired a patent for a pair of VR smart glasses. The glasses are designed to improve the video streaming experience for consumers by offering immersive content. The glasses are largely intended for those who stream video content on tablets or other mobile devices. When the screen appears directly in front of the viewer, the glasses provide an immersive VR experience.
Amazon's new patent could change the nature of video streaming by giving consumers the option to experience their favorite content in a new way. If the glasses prove popular, Amazon's original content may be tailored to complement VR technology.
