Apple eyes augmented reality future

CEO Tim Cook this week did an interview with China Daily, where he once again commented on on the future of augmented reality and hinted at Apple's work on an AR/VR headset. Cook said that Apple is excited about the opportunities available with augmented reality, which is not too far off from prior comments that he's made, but he went on to say that people should "stay tuned" to see what Apple has to offer. I couldn't be more excited about the opportunities we've seen in this space and sort of stay tuned and you'll see what we have to offer. Apple's headset is expected to offer mixed reality technology, with a curved visor and soft mesh that fits against the face. Apple is expected to debut the headset as soon as next year, and has already been demoing it to board members, suggesting it is getting closer to being finished. Though Apple has not confirmed its work on an AR/VR wearable device, rumors have been circulating about it for years now. I am incredibly excited about AR as you might know, and the critical thing to any technology including AR is putting humanity at the center of it. When it launches, the headset could cost somewhere around $3,000. (MacRumors). Continue reading.
