According to “The Information”, the VR-headset Apple 2022 will have two 8K display and can cost about $ 3,000.
The Information was the first publicationreporting N301, the code name for Apple VR product, at the end of 2019. This is a standalone headset, such as Oculus Quest from Facebook, but more elegant, with cameras much higher resolution for mixed reality.
In the past month, we received more information in the Bloomberg report, which stated that N301 chip with fan cooling, more powerful than the M1 to the latest Macbook, and lenses with a prescription instead of laying for points to keep it smooth.
The Information now claims, looked at the picture of the prototype at a late stage, “which reveal the smooth curved visor attached to the face mesh material and interchangeable bands”.
The report asserts that the facial interface is made of lightweight mesh material that block all outside light. Headband obviously interchangeable, with built-in spatial sound.
8K displays will give your device a 10-20 times more pixels than the Oculus Quest 2. They say that the headset uses tracking view to visualize only the foveal region in full resolution. This method is known as foveal rendering.
They say that the headset can accommodate more than 12 cameras, including camera for eye tracking. An external camera will pass through the real world in color with high resolution for mixed reality and provide tracking of the hands.
Apple is apparently working on several ideas, input, including “the device in the form of a thimble, which can be worn on the finger of a man”. It is unclear what the device will come with a headset.
The report asserts that the Apple inside the company discussed the price of the headset for about $ 3,000, with the aim to produce 250,000 units in the first year. However, Stott keep in mind that these plans are subject to change or Apple may opt out of the project, which is common practice for the company from Cupertino.
