Leaked injury reports suggest that Apple is working on AR glasses

0. phoneArena 20 Apr 2017, 16:22 posted on

Last month, we told you that the often rumored AR glasses reportedly being worked on by Apple are at least one-year away. Apple is quite high on AR right now with none other than CEO Tim Cook stating that Augmented Reality is going to be "huge." Google already tried to take AR to the mainstream with Google Glass, but the whole concept became too complex and expensive, not only for Google, but potentially for consumers as well...

They also have project Tango, or just Tango now. Where a Tango smartphone or Tablet has three different cameras to grab not only the objects that you are focused on, but can grab a series of point maps using the Tango devices depth sensors.

Apples using lasers to get an accurate reading of where the users eyes are looking.

Qualcomm and Intel both have VR/MR/AR headsets arriving in the fall of this year. Qualcomms headset has 4 cameras, 2 in front, and 2 looking at the users eyes.

Apple has time and time again reported on working on AR as the future, does it really need to be reiterated over and over before real updates are revealed?

It generates money for their dinner. It also brings the hives of people who claim they don't give a damn about Apple, have zero interest in Apple or their products, and always call Apple fanboys "sheep" while continuously going "baaaa baaaaa Apple baaaaAAAaaAaAaaAd!" I'm tired of this AR spam but oh well. Will have to live with it I guess

This post mirrors my exact sentiment almost to the letter. If Apple comes out with a pair of AR glasses in the near future, fine. If not, just as fine.

Looks like it brings in the people who are extremely insecure about criticism towards Apple too. It's working.

I don't give a s**t how successful or unsuccessful Apple is, it doesn't affect me. You tech fanboys are the board game players who get worked up when they are told to shower more than once a month.

Wait a minute; if you're here, doesn't that make you one of those sweaty comic nerds who doesn't shower as well? I mean, why else would you be here if you didn't enjoy tech? Trolling?

You have a god complex of sorts, as others have pointed out. I think that's an accurate summary of your posts.

Kiko doesn't have a god complex...what the heck are you talking about? He just says it like it is, and the lot of you can't handle his brutal honesty.

You never answer anyone's questions that are put to you. And if you try to answer you will put your own twist on a response, or you will go off on a tangent, and bring up something else.

Kiko007 is anything but honest.

Hololens is cool and all, but it's price and the FOV killed it for most.

Also MR is much cheaper, because you don't need hololens expensive AR lenses. With MR you can just implement a VR headset with a high FOV. The AR part comes from the cameras that are mounted on this MR headset. Therefore‚Äč you have the best of both worlds. The full immersion of VR and with the cameras AR as well. Hololens also could track your hands and other objects in the immediate vacinity of the headset. The same is also true for some of these new headsets that are coming in the fall.

I think its great as long as they don't claim they came up with the idea instead of just copying it.

I don't recall Apple ever once claiming they came up with a feature that wasn't new; Apple themselves have even openly admitted that they take existing ideas and perfect them.

The 'Apple claimed they invented it!!!' mindset is nothing more than the mentality of salty Android die-hard trolls.

Apple sorta contributes to that misconception, what with 'Rounded Corners'.

Well, they can claim that all others followed that trend.
