Disney Patents Hint At Future Game Consoles

The video game console market seems pretty full with Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo battling it out. Then you have independent consoles like the Ouya and GameStick. Now according to a patent uncovered by Patently Apple, it looks like Disney might be getting into the video game console market.

The patent suggests that Disney’s gaming console will focus on providing a 3D augmented reality experience, similar to the Nintendo 3DS, except with more support for AR experiences. The patent describes taking a picture of a mug, being able to animate the mug and then viewing it within the device so that it looks like a cartoon character.

It seems like it will be a handheld device. This could be interesting if it ever surfaces.
