According to Mr. Koo, the main chip will be similar to the M1 chipset introduced last year, and Mac computers use it. It also has a weaker chip that handles sensor processing. He says that this augmented reality headset can perform the required processing without the need for a Mac or iPhone and can handle a variety of applications. It will be M1 because it offers the same processing power. Aside from augmented reality, the headset apparently can also run virtual reality applications thanks to a pair of Sony 4K resolution microLED displays. This means that we are practically dealing with a powerful augmented reality headset.
But why Apple's first headset needed a separate processor other than the main processor is due to the cumbersome sensor-based processing. For example, Apple's first headset required at least six to eight optical modules to deliver AR content simultaneously and continuously. For comparison, the iPhone has a maximum of 3 optical modules that are not used continuously.
Mr. Ming-chi "Apple wants to completely replace the iPhone with augmented reality in 10 years, and this headset is the first step in achieving that," Ko wrote in his report. Initially, it was said that the headset needed a secondary gadget, such as an iPhone or Mac, to operate, which did not seem to be the case. On the other hand, Apple's first headset will certainly not be cheap, and we need to see how popular it is with users.
In this regard, we should mention the efforts of companies such as Facebook and Microsoft to create a meta-world Undoubtedly, these efforts will play an important role in increasing the popularity of virtual reality headsets. In simple terms, Metavars is a shared virtual space that users can access via the Internet. Virtual reality headsets are doing the same right now. Also in this space, users will be able to buy and sell as well as create new environments and items. But the main difference between them is the vastness of this world, and currently the virtual reality worlds are very small, but in Metavars we are dealing with a much larger world.
Although the concept of virtual reality and augmented and applications based on this They have two long histories, but have not yet received widespread attention from users. But Metavars is expected to change the way people work, access social networks and even surf the web. This means that thanks to Metavars and the efforts made for it, we will probably not be able to ignore concepts such as virtual reality in the near future.
