New Details Revealed About Upcoming Apple VR/AR

Virtual reality is in many ways the next big thing, and the biggest sign that this is the case is that major companies are investing in it because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up making the tech a lot more widespread than might have been the case otherwise. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, one of the most exciting possibilities for this kind of tech has to do with Apple’s foray into the field, and while the tech giant has been somewhat mum about its plans in this regard, everyone’s go to Apple tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed some details that are going to make a lot of people very excited indeed.

Apple is developing a mixed reality headset that will combine various aspects of AR as well as VR, and if this wasn’t exciting enough it turns out that the headset is going to have around fifteen cameras. These cameras are ostensibly going to be used to make it so that users can incorporate their surroundings into the VR experience that they are currently obtaining, and this will definitely help make things a lot better for them in terms of how much they can enjoy the games that they play.

Six of the cameras are going to be used for what is being called “innovative biometrics”, although what exactly this term is referring to is not exactly clear right now. Either way, these developments make it seem like Apple is trying to release an absolute game changer in the world of VR as well as AR, and it will be very interesting to see what official announcements end up coming our way once Apple decides to make an official release that would tell people what they should expect from the upcoming headset.
