We all know that Apple has big augmented reality (AR) ambitions but ARKit is focused on using an iPhone or iPad’s display to overlay digital information to the real world.
Which can also be done on glasses.
A patent that’s just been uncovered points at a new form factor for Apple’s AR assault. “Semi-transparent spectacle or glasses” are mentioned in the details of a patent that originated from Metaio – an augmented reality startup that Apple acquired in May 2015 – hinting at a pair of Apple AR smart glasses.
Oh, so Apple is working on smart glasses. What a surprise?
