Apple is building a 16K VR headset

Apple is building a 16K VR headset

Apart from Virtual Reality, the giant is also working out with Augmented Reality technology. If this is the case, Apple could potentially announce the product ahead of time towards the end of next year, with a launch following several months later.

Apple's Tim Cook has always been a proponent of AR technology, this is the first mention we've heard that the headset could also offer VR.

The project codenamed T288 is still in the early stages of development but the report says that Apple plans for an 8K display for each eye, meaning the headset will have higher resolution than the best LED TVs out there. The following iPhone X launch had a 15-minute segment of an Apple employee demonstrating the AR capabilities of the new iPhones with the A11 Bionic chipset.

Apple's tryst with AR and VR aren't new. We will have no doubts but to wait and see what we get, especially if Apple makes it public which they haven't yet.

Saints trade up in NFL Draft, select Marcus Davenport
But in order to get the most out of Jordan, New Orleans needs to make opposing offenses pay for throwing too many blockers at him. The interior of the defensive line could've actually used a bit more help than the pass rush for the Saints .

Previous rumors have claimed that the headset will run on a new operating system dubbed "rOS". The headset would in fact support version 2.0 of the technology, that would apparently boost speeds and range in such devices, and is slated to release sometime in 2019.

Meanwhile, Apple has recently introduced "ARKit" - the company's AR development platform that could recognize only recognize horizontal surfaces while placing virtual objects at the moment. The headset which will not require any external sensor will also feature built-in location tracking sensors. It will have two 8K displays, one for each eye, which brings the total to a jaw-dropping 16K resolution.

The headset's box, which resembles a PC tower but will not be an actual Mac computer, will be powered by a custom Apple processor that will be more powerful than all other chips now available. Devices like the HTC Vive or the Oculus Rift need a high-end computer to work, along side a bevy of wires and cables.
