While we still don't have a release date for Microsoft's HoloLens augmented reality headset, we are slowly inching closer to availability as the year wears on. As expected, Microsoft is also tidying things up, with the latest bit of news seeing the company granted a design patent for the headset.
As spotted by Patently Mobile, the U.S. Patent and Trademark office has now granted Microsoft a design patent for a "headset with Visor." While the design patent doesn't reveal anything about the headset that we don't already know, it does provide a decent all-around look at the basic design features.
In early August, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that HoloLens will arrive "within the next year," coming first to developers and enterprise users. Nadella also noted that Microsoft is looking at HoloLens as a "five-year journey," and it will continue to evolve over that time.
We've already received a few looks at HoloLens at Microsoft events, and while the company's October 6 event is expected to focus mostly on new Lumia devices and a new Surface Pro tablet, we may get yet another peek at HoloLens.
