Previously, we have talked to you about the progress that Apple is making in various devices and how it is taken for granted that it works in three different augmented reality helmets that serve the company to consolidate and strengthen an area that has not yet taken off, despite the continuous news we have about it.
Since the news broke in early March, more details have come in about it. The plans are ambitious and different approaches are being sought between now and the next few years, from advanced helmets with more than 15 cameras incorporated to others that are like contact lenses, but little is known about the launch dates.
From the beginning it was said that the first model would have a design similar to that of a helmet, although with a lighter approach than usual in these teams. In addition, 2022 was also considered as the launch date, but it may be earlier.
As reported in Bloomberg, it is possible that Apple will make a presentation “in the coming months ” in which the new mixed reality headset is the flagship device. This is how you will start your strategy to take over the domain of augmented reality, which seems an inescapable future in the sector.
The objective would be none other than to try to attract the gaze of the industry so that other manufacturers and developers also promote augmented reality. Meanwhile, Apple would work on increasingly smaller and more modern helmets.
But this first helmet will not reach the general public or democratize a technology that will continue to be prohibitive for many, since there is talk that the price of the device will be around 3,000 euros. Despite the price, Apple intends to sell more than 150,000 units.
We will see if the information published by Bloomberg is accurate, but it would not be surprising if at some point in 2021 we had an Apple event focused on augmented reality: you must hurry if you want to be a pioneer in this technology.
