It looks like Apple's work on AR glasses ("Apple Glasses") continues:
Janko Roettgers for Variety:
Apple's upcoming mixed reality headset can include a variety of sensors to track the eyes, movements and even facial expressions from their users … The actual patent application, simply titled "Display System Having Sensors," was first filed in March this year, and published last week. It describes in detail plans to use a variety of sensors to collect data from the user of a mixed reality headset.
Apple has been working on his own headset for a couple of years now. Last year, CNET reported that this headset would combine augmented and virtual reality, meaning it would cover virtual objects and worlds over a real-world view.
The patent application filed last week further describes how the company is likely to do so: by capturing the real world with outward-facing cameras, then displaying those images on a screen ̵1; an approach that is very different from how Microsoft's and Magic Leaps augmented reality headset works.
MacDailyNews Take: Apple Glasses will change everything.
Of course, iPhone would be the muscle. You want glasses to be as light and stylish as possible, and not have great electronics in your face. Hopefully we can run with these when we want a heads-up view of the pace, HR, etc. That will be much safer than looking at Apple Watch when driving on roads.
The possibilities are endless: "Siri, what kind of tree is this?" "Siri, which track is my train at?" Siri, what are the squares of this room? "
