Virtual and augmented realities – is it too late to get a patent?
In our latest Question of the Week, we discussed how a patent can protect your idea in a more effective way than a traditional NDA. In this video, we will focus on a popular industry: VR and AR.
Companies are filing VR and AR patents at a lightning pace. Sony, Microsoft and Samsung each have hundreds of patents for VR and AR technologies, while Apple and Oculus Rift are catching up. At least 1000 patents have been granted in the US this year alone, if not more.
If you are a startup with VR technology, you need to file for a patent right now. If you don’t have the detailed design ready, file for a provisional patent. Remember, filing is the best defense! You can still beat the big companies with speed and swiftness.
If you want to protect your idea, file for a patent. We at KISSPatent can help you to turn your ideas into profit. Give us a call and we will be happy to answer all of your questions. Submit your own question for our Question of the week series and we'll answer it!
