Apple VR Headset In The Works?
Though Apple's focus on reality-altering technologies has been focused on augmented reality thus far, a CNET report suggests that Apple is working to develop a headset that will be able to offer virtual reality as well as AR. The headset would potentially include an 8K display for each eye, and would not require a smartphone or computer to power it, according to the report. The headset could be released as soon as 2020, CNET reported. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Michael Goldstein, president and CEO of LAN Infotech, an Apple partner based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., called the possible VR plans a "great competitive idea" for Apple. "Samsung has their product integrated directly for Galaxy devices," Goldstein said, but there's "no Apple product available today." The move would create "an even playing field as the technology moves more mainstream," he said.
