  • Apple VR headset

A few months back we reported that Apple is working on a new AR Headset.

Previous year at the World Wide Developer's Conference 2017, Apple talked a lot about the Augmented Reality. CEO Tim Cook has been quite vocal about the technologies, especially AR, but Apple has as such stayed mum over the prospects of a dedicated headset so far.

The report further mentions the project that is internally referred to as "T288" and was hinted in some of the reports back in 2017.

The report further claims that the VR headset will connect wirelessly to a dedicated "box" using a high-speed short-range wireless technology called 60GHz WiGig. the source said that the box will be powered by a 5-nanometer proprietary Apple processor that will be "more powerful than anything now available" in the market.

Not many details have been revealed at the moment as the project is still in its very early stages.

NFL Draft: Hayden Hurst is lone Round 1 tight end
General manager Ozzie Newsome is leaving his post after the 2018 season, so this is his final National Football League draft. Last season, Jackson threw for 3,660 yards with 27 touchdowns and had 1,601 yards rushing with 18 more scores.


Again, herdsmen launch coordinated attacks on Benue communities, kill 39
President Muhammadu Buhari has described as vile and satanic the killing of worshipers and two priests at the church in Benue. They vowed to halt commercial activities in the state until "a lasting solution" is brought to the killing by herdsmen.


Previous rumors have claimed that the headset will run on a new operating system dubbed "rOS". Apple may announce it before the expected date or at a later one, things are not decided yet. It is slated for a 2020 release, and the product - if finalised - could be Apple's long-awaited breakthrough into the AR market. Which is finally making headlines in reality.

If we talk about the future, Augmented Reality would cover medical, engineering and more areas in the coming years. I'm actually believing that there will be some kind of lower-end AR glasses from Apple before the magical 8K per eye T288 VR/AR headset. The small box would be short-range and high-speed.

On the other hand, Intel is also working on their own Wireless VR Headset.

The headset's box, which resembles a PC tower but will not be an actual Mac computer, will be powered by a custom Apple processor that will be more powerful than all other chips now available. In the coming years, the entire technology world will be changed with the Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies.
