APPLE VR: LATEST NEWS
Good morning dear readers of Tecnogalaxy, today we will talk about the latest news about the Apple VR.
Apple’s virtual reality headset has not yet been officially confirmed, but what is known is that, unlike the company’s upcoming Apple Glasses, the Apple VR headset will focus less on augmented reality, although the latest reports suggest that it will have an AR component, and should arrive on the market sooner.
Both products were allegedly affected by several obstacles during their development, but it is hoped that the N301 (the VR headset) will begin to recover costs as work on the company’s AR glasses continues.
An Apple analyst and insider shared new details about the company’s mixed reality ambitions, detailing this first-generation device, which will then set the level for premium virtual reality and augmented reality hardware to come with a second generation viewer to follow shortly after.
Release date and price Apple VR
It is rumored that Apple’s first headset will be released in the first quarter of 2022. Many of these same sources have also stated that the VR device has faced multiple development challenges; therefore, it is possible that this suspicious date may be further delayed if further problems arise.
Although a price has not yet been confirmed, a report about the Apple VR headset, we can find it at a price of 3,000€.
According to new rumors, the Apple VR headset could weigh just 150 grams. It is less than the combined weight of the Air Pod Max and its case or the weight of an iPhone 12. This would also make it the lightest headset with a respectable hardware, easily comparable to the Oculus Quest 2.
It remains to be seen how Apple hopes to succeed while providing enough technology and power to deliver a rewarding experience. This less heavy design may not include all of the features listed below (such as 8K screens) and may instead use the company’s newly patented hologram technology.
Great ambitions of mixed reality
The Apple analyst and insider, shared new details about the company’s mixed reality ambitions, describing in detail this first-generation device, which will then set the level for premium virtual reality and augmented reality hardware to come with a second generation viewer to follow shortly after.
Double screen 8K
A feature that seems almost certain given the plethora of leaks are the dual 8K displays of the VR headset. With a resolution of 7680 x 4320, they are four times more pixels than a 4K screen and significantly more pixels than any other commercially available device.
For comparison, the Valve Index VR headset uses two 1440 x 1600 pixel displays. Take this information with pliers, however, since they simply rely on leaks.
Lidar scanning is a new and stylish way for devices to detect the world around them and we have seen that Apple uses it on products like iPad Pro and iPhone 12 Pro / iPhone 12 Pro Max. In a system similar to radar, lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) Use lasers to determine the distance and depth of objects.
This tool is great for AR, allowing devices to more accurately map virtual constructs to real-life objects, but it could also be used with virtual reality to map a room and determine the safe space around a user.
3D modelling of fingers and recognition of gestures in air
Apple has also obtained a patent on 3D finger modeling for the recognition of gestures in the air, suggesting a system that can use virtual arts to navigate virtual environments. The patent refers to both finger gestures and visual touch detection, with images of figures describing how the system could work.
Although this approach to finger tracking may be new, the actual result looks similar to the tracking software that is already present in existing VR headsets, such as Oculus Quest 2.
