The company is rumored to be launching AR glasses, its most ambitious project in years.
Next year is shaping up to be a busy one for Apple if rumors are to be believed, filled with new technology that may be on par with moments like the first Macintosh introduction 1984, the first iMac in 1999, or the iPhone in 2007.
But this time around, the key item will stretch Apple into new territory: AR/VR glasses.
This project, one of Apple’s most ambitious in years, is rumored to encompass augmented reality and virtual reality. AR overlays computer information on images of the real world, while VR places a screen so close to your eyes that your brain is tricked into thinking you’ve been transported to a computer-generated world.
Most of the leaks and rumors about Apple’s AR/VR glasses thus far have focused on their specs, such as ultra-fast wireless networking, but many questions still surround Apple’s headset… beginning with its name. Maybe iGlass?
