A favourite rumor making their rounds in the past few years is that Apple could be looking to develop their very own pair of AR glasses. We’ve seen this attempted by the likes of Google in the past, although it wasn’t very successful, so while it does seem like an energizing potential for Apple, we are a bit skeptical.
Of course, Apple hasn’t actually proved anything more, but a recent interview Apple’s CEO Tm Cook did with the New York Times’ Kara Swisher certainly seemed to hint at the possibility of such a invention being in the works.
According to Cook, one of the examples of the use of AR he contributed involved enhance dialogues. “You and I are having a great conversation right now. Arguably, it is possible to even be better if we were able to augment our discussion with plots or other things to appear. I’m already reading AR take off in some of these areas with use of the telephone. And I speculate the promise is even greater in the future.”
Obviously such a situation wouldn’t exactly is a possibility or handy use maneuvers like a phone or tablet, so it does sense that it would come in the form of a wearable headset. Of route, this is just speculation on our fraction, but Cook has never been shy about extolling the virtues of AR technology in the past.
While we wouldn’t advise that you take Cook’s statements and feelings about AR as an assurance that such a headset exists, recent rumors have shown that we could actually see something from Apple in the next few months.
