smart glasses development –
Apple is almost finished developing its smart glasses, which allow you to see virtual objects on top of reality. The device will probably be officially announced soon, Bloomberg reports Thursday.
According to the news agency, a version of the glasses was recently demonstrated to the company’s board of directors. That group, which meets at least four times a year, consists of eight directors and CEO Tim Cook.
They will be the first to see future products before they are unveiled.
The company is said to be working on a headset that works with both augmented and virtual reality (VR). With augmented reality, users see images about reality, with VR they are in a virtual environment.
In terms of design, the glasses should resemble the Quest 2, a VR headset from the company behind Facebook.
The glasses may appear on the market in 2022, according to leaked information. Two 4K screens hang in front of the eyes, while front-facing cameras record your surroundings. In addition, the glasses would run on the new operating system reality OS.
The headset will probably be sold from 2,000 dollars (converted about 1,900 euros). Previously, it was assumed that 3,000 dollars. The price is significantly higher than with competing products: the Quest 2 costs 350 euros at the time of writing.
Apple’s glasses would be intended for professionals, not general consumers.
