3D Glasses Box and Mixed Reality Headset From Apple
If you’re not familiar with AR glasses, these devices are a step above the usual 3D glasses. They include no prescription lenses and can be used as standalone entertainment devices. They’re also likely to have a dedicated chip inside. Apple is said to be working on a dedicated AR/VR headset, which could come with an integrated driver chip.
VR glasses with no prescription lenses
It’s important to get a good pair of prescription lenses if you wear glasses. VR glasses with no prescription lenses may not be suitable for people with vision problems. However, if you have myopia or mild nearsightedness, you might benefit from a prescription lens. The lenses will be attached to your headset.
Most VR headsets come with space for glasses. If yours does not, you may need to buy a special spacer that will fit your glasses. Otherwise, you risk getting smudges on your headset lens or even steaming them up. Alternatively, you could use a prescription lens adapter.
Apple’s AR/VR headset could have a dedicated chip
According to a new report from CNET, Apple is working on a mixed reality headset. It’s been in the works for several years, and Apple has been building advanced AR tools into its products. Those tools are expected to be included in Apple’s mixed reality headset, which will also feature the company’s new M2 chip. According to the report, Apple’s board of directors is already seeing the mixed reality headset in action.
The headset will have as many as fourteen cameras, which have caused some problems for engineers. This means that the headset will need more than one chip to process all of the data. In addition, the battery life won’t be good, and users will have to recharge the headset frequently. Apple may also make its AR/VR headset wearable, so it can be recharged anytime.
The next generation of VR glasses will include large-area OLED microdisplays. The technology will allow these displays to be made compact and lighter, thus making them an attractive option for consumer use. However, there are several drawbacks to these displays. These include flickering images and low frame rates. To address these problems, the Fraunhofer FEP project has developed a high-speed, lightweight, and ergonomic solution for VR glasses.
One major hurdle to the success of AR/VR headsets is the resolution. Most current VR displays are only limited to 720p. However, newer microdisplays have a higher resolution. These are also smaller than existing displays and can be integrated into a headset.
Sony’s integrated drivers
Sony has announced a virtual reality headset that will use integrated drivers that will run on the PlayStation 5 console. The headset will feature eye tracking technology, 3D audio, and headset feedback. It will also connect directly to the console. The company also announced an exclusive game for the headset called “Horizon Call of the Mountain.” Last year, Facebook’s virtual reality unit, Meta, announced an exclusive deal with “Grand Theft Auto V” for the Oculus 2 virtual reality headset.
The Sony VR headset has a 4K OLED microdisplay that offers a higher resolution than the PSVR. The headset also features a compact, glasses-like form factor and a single display per eye. The headset is powered by a Snapdragon XR1 processor, which is also used in many smartphones. It also has integrated speakers and a foldable design.
