Injuries at Apple pointing to AR testing?

Another source of potential leaks Apple needs to seal...

I've seen these reports for what seems like a few days now. (Been a busy week) This one is the most detailed I've seen

I recommend reading the whole article, but a few choice clips are here. 

There isn't anything certain about this report - except what it says -- it might be meaningful, or it may mean that in a gigantic organization nearly every kind of injury will pop up at some point. A laser flash could have come from a number of common household tools.... there's not enough here to know anything. (just more dots that may at some point be connectable to something else -- that might or might not at some time provide us with a picture.)

Tech Radar


"In what sounds like a fairly routine report are a pair of incidents that potentially point to an Apple AR product in testing: two people experienced eye injuries when using prototypes.

One person required "medical treatment beyond first aid" after she experienced eye discomfort while using a "prototype unit".

"After BT4 user study, user advised study lead, that she experienced discomfort in her eye and said she was able to see the laser flash at several points during the study," the report reads. "Study lead referred her to optometrist and secured prototype unit for analysis."

"See the laser flash" is a phrase that leads us to think the tester was looking through something when she developed an eye issue, though that's our speculation."

Gizmodo spoke to a source at Apple who mused the second incident may involve an AR device Apple is possibly testing, though this person didn't offer any hard evidence. The publication notes the device is "something like glasses with an overhead display."
