The Wii U controller will support a 3D display
Although there still a long way to go for the next Nintendo home console, gradually we are getting to know new Wii U details, the next bet of the company from Nippon after Wii, the best selling console of this generation. Wii U stays true to its predecessor, with superior graphics power from the Wii, also designed for gamers a very peculiar feature: a controller screen, the cornerstone of this new platform.
Little is known about the characteristics of the screen that is included with the controller, but recently we have discovered new details, such as using a built in camera and several microphones. Of all the features, there are two new aspects that have come to light from a patent filed by Nintendo: a high definition display that will support three-dimensional images, something totally new for Nintendo, for the moment, it has not been officially announced.
The Nippon company will certainly use the same system as that used in its handheld Nintendo 3DS, through a stereoscopic screen, as many of you know, it can display two identical images with different approaches, allowing to achieve an optical effect that contributes to image depth, as elements without special glasses. The main problems of this system are the lack of effect when viewing from a different angle or the need to regulate the 3D display for each user, being totally different in different games.
Among other interesting and previously unknown features about the Wii U Remote is a facial recognition system where a user can import their face into the game, which is mainly useful for augmented reality games or avatars, the Miis. In any case, all these aspects are not 100% official, since the characteristics of the controller registered patent may differ in when we actually see the controller with the console when it is launched.
