Apple Working On An AR/VR Headset With 16K Resolution Display

Details are trickling out about Apple's reported interest in smart glasses

Apple's reportedly interested in making smart glasses — and a new report from CNET on Friday shed more light on what the plan could

Altogether, the details paint a picture of what is primarily a VR headset in development at Apple.

Apple's secret AR headset has gotten leaked once again, the third major time in the past couple of months. The report also mentions that internally, the project is being referred as "T288". Such a feature already places it ahead of the competition, as the HTC Vive Pro, already sharper than most of the other VR headsets, only offers up to 1,440 x 1,600 pixels per eye.

Project T288 is a hybrid AR and VR headset created to make full utilization of both formats, boasting a per-eye resolution of 8K and using 60GHz WiGig technology for an untethered experience, according to CNET's sources. While still in its early stages, the article states that the headset is slated for release in 2020.

The development of augmented reality is high on the list of priorities for Apple, as previously revealed by CEO Tim Cook.

One of the complaints for high-performance virtual reality headsets is the prevalence of wires, but such a problem will not be present in the T288. The headset will also come equipped with several fitted cameras that will actively monitor the surroundings. The box, which would be powered by a custom Apple processor more powerful than anything now available, would act as the brain for the AR/VR headset.
