Tech giant Apple is working on “Apple Glass”. As per a report, Apple Glass may come with holograms to create 3D virtual objects. This technology can be used to make virtual objects appear more realistic.
According to AppleInsider, Apple has filed yet another patent for its forthcoming “Apple Glass.” According to the patent, the company is exploring 3D methods of showing information to the wearer, as well as realistic audio effects.
Although the company has applied for several patents in recent months, the most recent one focuses on enhancing the device’s 3D experience.
According to the patent, the company intends to make the consumer feel “as if they were physically in that environment” by using the “Scene camera” developed by UK-based inventors Richard J. Topliss and Michael David Simmonds.
The glasses capture the user’s perspective of the real world and then display details based on the scene seen in the real world. As a result, as the user moves, the scene camera adjusts to better match its 3D environment.
A substantial portion of the patent is dedicated to addressing possible problems caused by getting projectors and other devices mounted on the side of the glasses.
According to the patent, “virtual reality systems may display stereoscopic scenes to users in order to create an illusion of depth, and a computer may adjust the scene content in real-time to provide the illusion of the user moving within the scene.”
A patent also says “When the user views images through a virtual reality system, the user may thus feel as if they are moving within the scenes from the first-person point of view.”
Meanwhile, Apple is working on a mixed reality headset. Apple headset may feature a mix of virtual reality (VR) and also augmented reality (AR) and may launch in 2022.
