Apple seems to be slow on the development of VR, AR, MR products and technologies, but that doesn’t mean the tech giant is not interested. The latest leaks indicate that Apple has chosen the German company Carl Zeiss to develop a pair of augmented reality smart glasses that could come out as soon as this year.
According to a well-known blogger Robert Scoble, both companies have confirmed the partnership, but prefer to keep quiet about the project for now.
It’s interesting that Zeiss had a booth in the augmented reality section of CES without showing off any augmented reality product. The company has designed a VR headset before, Zeiss VR One Plus (shown as the picture above).
Actually, Tim Cook claimed in July that Apple has a deep interest in augmented reality. “AR can be really great. We have been and continue to invest a lot in this.”
