Facebook, Apple, AR
deccanchronicle.com -- Not sure what I think of the source.
Apple is not the only company which is looking to launch the AR glasses next year, as Facebook is actively working on a new product, and Mark Zuckerberg has stated that the glasses will be “small enough to take anywhere.”
An initial report had also stated that Apple’s upcoming AR glasses would wirelessly connect to an iPhone and stream videos or app content. Apple is said to have assigned hundreds of engineers to work on the new technology, and some of them focusing exclusively on the new iPhone.
AR features on the new iPhone would allow users to take a picture and then change the depth of the entire image or the depth of specific objects inside the pic. Users would also be able to isolate certain objects inside images and tilt them 180 degrees.
If the rumors are true, then we will be able to see the result of Apple’s efforts in AR development with the launch of the iPhone 8 later this year.
