A recent report about an injury in Apple campus suggests the company is already working on the AR prototype. The injury happened late in March where a user claims she had discomforts in her eye after trying the prototype. This was followed by another report where the person mentioned experiencing pain in the eyes.
According to Mac Rumors, the injury report was titled “Impact Descriptions Reported in [Santa Clara Valley] from Last Month,” and it shares information about the allegedly Apple’s AR project. The report also confirms Apple is testing a 3D image design into the augmented reality device. The injured person was sent to an optometrist with the AR prototype for analysis.
Another eye injury report was filed and it mentioned an employee experiencing some eye pain after trying the Apple AR prototype according to The Next Web. The report also mentioned the employee saw the security seal of the case was broken and thought the unit tampered. Although nothing is confirmed, the injury reports strongly suggest Apple is secretly working on an AR and/or VR headset prototypes.
For more than 10 years, Apple is said to be exploring the AR and VR technology based on the patent filings of the company. For that reason, it wouldn’t be surprising if the company finally releases their own version in the near future. Many speculate Apple has a research unit with hundreds of employees solely working on the development of their own augmented reality and virtual reality technology.
Having their own AR and VR technology opens new possibilities for Apple products. It can improve map apps, camera filters, 3D interfaces up to full virtual reality experience. And since the company has yet to comment on the rumor, it is not determined whether their technology will be in direct competition with Oculus Rift, Microsoft HoloLens, or something different.
