AR firm sues Microsoft over HoloLens patent infringements

When talking about virtual reality, multiple companies are leading the way including Oculus, HTC, and Sony. The lawsuit comes in relation to the HoloLens handset by Microsoft.

It looks as though HoloTouch doesn't just have its eyes set on Microsoft, with the company preparing additional complaints against patent infringements due to its tech being patented in the US, Japan, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, with additional patents covering 28 member states in the European Union pending. That complaint alleges Microsoft's HoloLens infringes issued patents for our touchless, holographic human-machine interface technology.

According to Engadget, the Connecticut-based company HoloTouch has come forward, alleging that the HoloLens' imaging tech infringes on two of its own decade-old patents.

The law suit filed in the court accuses the Redmond Giant, that the technology in question had been discussed with Microsoft in 2006 by HoloTouch, but that time the Redmond Giant had gone against using such a technology. Even then HoloTouch tried to make an agreement with Microsoft, but its attempts that were made in 2015 and 2016 also received no response. In 2013, HoloTouch claims Microsoft filed a patent citing HoloTouch patents as prior art, which if confirmed, could prove a willful infringement.
