Apple has reportedly put together a huge coque samsung galaxy a3 coque iphone 5 fantaisie 2015 team of experts to work on its virtual reality initiative and has coque samsung galaxy j1 2016 built headset coque samsung galaxy j5 prototypes.
This «secret research unit» is said to be comprised of hundreds of coque samsung a3 2015 staffers picked up through various acquisitions, according to the Financial Times. Others were poached from firms already working on virtual and augmented reality technologies, including Microsoft’s HoloLens, and camera companies like Lytro.
Apple confirmed is latest acquisition is a company called Flyby coque samsung s8 silicone Media, a start up that makes tech so phones can «see» the world around them. Flyby worked coque iphone 6 rose transparent with coque iphone 4 bleu marine Google to develop software for the search giant’s Project Tango 3D mapping coque samsung j5 personnalisé tech.
It’s just the latest in a coque fraise iphone 5 string of VR and AR related acquisitions for the company, and it won’t be the last. In 2013, coque iphone 5 s marbre Apple picked up 3D motion tracking company PrimeSense coque iphone 4 rigide originale and last year it bought both AR company Metaio and face animation firm Faceshift. Now, Cupertino is said to be looking to buy up optical technology firms so it coque iphone 5 silicone 3d starbuck can put a bow on its VR headset.
Headset prototypes builtApple coque samsung galaxy a5 2017 has coque iphone 5 verre de vin assembled large teams dedicated to next gen projects before, and it sounds like the VR group is coque iphone 6s zelda making headway. According to the coque iphone 6 requin report, Apple has been cranking out prototypes of coque samsung galaxy s3 potential headset configurations for several months.
It’s unclear at this point whether Apple’s headset will be in the vein of Oculus Rift, or whether it will follow Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear amazon coque samsung s7 VR in crafting a headset that houses coque iphone 6 alliexpress an iPhone for a mobile virtual reality experience. Or, it may go the route of coque licorne iphone 5 HoloLens for a mixed reality offering.
Also up in the air is when Apple will release its headset, if ever.
This apparently isn’t Apple’s first foray into making a VR headset: Under Steve Jobs, a coque iphone 6 no game no life small team put together some headset prototypes and filed patents of potential designs in the mid 2000s, but the project was abandoned when the tech was deemed immature, according to the Financial Times.
Today’s news comes a few days after a company earnings call on which CEO Tim Cook said virtual reality isn’t «niche.»
«It’s coque licorne iphone 5 se really cool and has interesting applications,» Cook said of virtual reality.
The safe bet is on Apple releasing a VR headset, at some point. Another potential area where Apple could use its acquired talent and tech is in the Apple Car.
