Microsoft is working on something, and it is called Fragments. We're not sure if it will ever see the light of day, but we do know it is a video game and it could be exclusive to HoloLens.

According to a registration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Microsoft filed for "Fragments" under the Class 9 category, which has much to do with game software.

We're not certain what type of video game or service this is, but we do know it has something to do with HoloLens. In the past, the Redmond-based company already gave us a glimpse of the device, showing a video of what folks should expect.

In this video, there's a scene with a woman using HoloLens, and in front of her is a hologram with several apps. One of the apps on the wall reads, "Fragmen" backwards, and we believe this is the same thing, only fully spelled out as Fragments.

While the idea of a video game with full HoloLens support may sound interesting, we must keep in mind that anything is possible at this point. It is very possible that nothing may ever become of Fragments since Microsoft files for patents all the time, and the majority never makes it out of the testing room.

Still, we'd love to see what this is because it could make for a very fun game, but only if HoloLens improves on its tiny field of view, and if the price of the device is well within reach of most consumers who are looking for the next best thing in tech.

For now, we just have to wait and see what happens along the way as the software giant works to change the world of computing with a single device.
