Microsoft is continuing to explore the possibility of entering the virtual reality market.
"We've looked at that and we continue to look at that and we'll see what happens," he said. "That's a hard problem to solve. You're using technology to trick the human brain to do things it's not supposed to do. That's why people get headaches. We have to find the right way to do it."
It recently emerged that Microsoft is in the process of applying for over 80 patents related to augmented reality glasses, fuelling long-held rumours that the company plans to extend the Xbox One experience with wearable computing technology. The firm reportedly paid up to $150 million to buy IP assets related to augmented reality from the wearable computing firm Osterhout Design Group.
In June 2012, CVG published details from a leaked Microsoft document that outlines the product roadmap for 'Fortazela Glasses' - electronic shades that would overlay rich 3D images.
