A Nintendo patent has been discovered which depicts a handheld device which includes an infrared camera and distance sensor. The patent was discovered today but it was originally filed with the Japan Patent office back in September 2014. As always this is just a patent, or an idea, and it doesn’t mean it will come to anything. Here’s a quick summary of what this newly discovered Nintendo patent is about.
- Infrared camera and distance sensor
- Gesture recognition
- Distance measuring
- One example includes projector and GPS receiver
