At Apple, a virtual reality headset would be at the advanced prototype stage. It would be equipped with a revolutionary system that would allow its user to control by eye movement, and even by blinking, combining authentication by iris recognition.

Apple may well revolutionize the virtual reality headset market soon. According to the famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (TF Securities), the headset that Apple is preparing to release in 2022 will in particular be able to analyze the user by analyzing his irisiris but also to ensure unprecedented eye tracking throughout his activity. According to the latest information gleaned by this specialist of the apple brand, Apple would indeed have a virtual and augmented reality headset, in the drawers. It could be marketed in 2022.

Virtual reality and augmented reality: what concrete uses for tomorrow?

Be careful, this would be an independent product of the connected glasses project, more mainstream, which could also be released next year. Will this be enough to finally seduce the general public? This helmet would in any case be a high-end product, presenting several major innovations. The most important would be a sophisticated eye tracking system. The headset will be able to know which direction its user is looking in at any time. He can also intervene with a blink of an eye or even see thanks to the recognition of the iris.

And actually pay with your virtual reality headset?

From there, the uses could be upset. It is, for example, conceivable to see the optimized image where the person is looking precisely and, conversely, reduce the quality of the image elsewhere. It could also be envisaged to display information by fixing a very specific point or to validate information or to interact with an element by simply blinking your eyes. As for the recognition of the iris, it could make it possible not only to recognize the different users of a headset but also to validate payments via Apple Pay.

The whole thing should integrate two high-resolution screens as well as a homemade chip, in line with what the American manufacturer offers with its new MacBooks. This future headset, a first for Apple, will probably not be very mainstream, but will certainly pave the way for a new era, in a sector that has never really taken off.
