Apple’s forthcoming AR headset that is expected to allow augmented reality as well as virtual reality, will probably be equipped with a range of sensors that are advanced according to the most recent announcement by Kuo.
Apple’s forthcoming AR headset that is expected to include augmented reality as well as virtual reality, is expected to be equipped with a range of high-tech sensors. The most recent information comes from renowned Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo from TF International Securities, who has provided the information in an investor’s note.
According to 9to5Mac who accessed the document, Kuo is predicting that the Apple headset will feature advanced hand gesture detection and 3D sensors that are more sophisticated than those for the Face ID for iPhones and iPads.
The report also states that it will feature the capability of four 3D sensors that will enable more precise recording of gestures and object detection and more. The report states that AR/MR will have the ability to detect any change in the position of the user. However, it will also capture the details of hand motions “for an enhanced Human-machine interaction.”
The headset will be able to support “eye-tracking and the recognition of iris, voice control facial expression detection and spatial detection” according to the report.
The analyst earlier stated the headset would function independently from an iPhone and come with Mac-level processing, and it will be equipped with two processors. One is an M1 processor, while the other is an entry-level processor. The headset will include two 4K Sony micro OLED displays, too. He expects that it will replace the iPhone 10 years down the road.
The headset is anticipated to be costly. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman had predicted it could cost upwards of $2000 when it debuts its appearance. It will also include “advanced chips display, sensors, and avatar-based features.”
