Apple's Enters Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality (VR) headsets are a relatively new technology that has taken the world by storm. These headsets are designed to immerse users in a virtual world, allowing them to experience a new level of entertainment and gaming.

VR headsets come in different shapes, sizes, and designs. Still, they all have one thing in common: they use a combination of sensors, displays, and other hardware to create a 3D environment.

In a marketplace previously dominated by Facebook’s or Meta’s “Oculus,” Apple has entered the game with a VR headset of its own.

VR headsets have been around for a few years and have evolved significantly since their inception. This usually meant bulky and expensive devices that were only accessible to a few people.

Mind you, the Apple VR set still holds a price tag of $3500, but its boastings may very well make the price tag worth it per Apple and, subsequently, MSNBC:

  • Two Micro-OLED displays about an inch in diameter, each with a resolution of over a 4K television.

  • An Apple M2 processor, the same as a laptop, and a specialized R1 processor for cameras and other visuals.

  • Eye tracking.

  • Six microphones.

  • Twelve cameras and five sensors for monitoring hand gestures.

Let the VR games begin.
