Agreed. So many don't know that he died for our sins so that we could have unaffordable hipster goggles.

"A keyboard?  How quaint."

/that image if funnier when you consider that Apple did away with the physical keyboard with the iPhone

Explain the irony of the situation, subby.

Apple's AR system isn't copying Google's Glass subby.  That would be silly.

They're copying Microsoft's HoloLens.

Why could Scotty type? He wouldn't have had any typing training. I had typing all through high school, I'm a programmer and I still hunt and peck. I guess the obvious answer is that he's a genius and I'm a moron but my IQ is, oh fark it.

Currently, Google is working on inventing their copy of Air Drop.

They just invented their copy of ARKit a couple of weeks ago.

However, Google Glass was not then and never has been AR.

It was a tiny 640x360 overlay in the corner of your eye that displayed information.

I'm still happy that Apple finally invented an onscreen keyboard where the letters change with the state of the shift key, seven years after iOS was introduced; and that Apple invented general purpose file browsing 10 years after iOS was introduced. It is good that Apple has finally brought files into the world as a concept since we who live in darkness could never have understood them at any time prior to the 10th release of iOS.

Bump was out on IOS and Android before Airdrop.

And googles project is based on Project Tango, which developed two years before Apple released Arkit.

Wonder if the iGoggles will have a reasonable price for a dev kit and not neuter themselves out of the gate with a screen that doesn't cover peripheral vision... eh Microsoft?

/I would be developing for hololens if it didn't cost $2000.
//Also any new AR/VR headset worth its salt will have peripheral vision covered
///3 slashies for 3 tech companies in the market:  Apple, Google, and Microsoft.  Let's see who shoots their foot first.

My issue is actually having free cash in that quantity around, business expense or not.  I won't even know what a viable market for it could be until I see what it can do.

Actually Google Glass is growing, because they're using it in corporate applications. In factories showing the right way to do each action ,for reference when looking up info.

Hey, Apple just got done inventing wireless charging and NFC.  Do they have to think of everything?

Apple isn't interested in the current crop of AR devices that use a phone as both the screen and the processor.

Does an AR device exist that uses a phone as both the screen and processor?

I know you can get AR apps for phones. And Google Cardboard (and the Chinese frames) use phones for VR.

But I haven't heard of a single AR device using phones as both screen and processor.

The AR headset will be all inclusive, with its own screen, and an Apple-designed chip. It will also have a brand new OS, currently labeled "rOS" for "reality operating system." It's possible that users will be able to download and install apps from an AR app store, much like they do across other Apple devices. The mechanisms for launching and interacting these apps -- whether via head gestures or through Siri -- hasn't yet been decided upon, according to Bloomberg.

So the Hololens?

Shh. If you acquaint Subby with the facts, his pointy little head will explode.

First party?  No.  Physically connected?  No.  Next you will say there were styluses from the first iPad so the pencil is in no way a rip off.

Because Apple doesn't yet have an augmented reality headset of its own, it's using other companies' devices to develop and test features for their new device. Anonymous sources told Bloomberg that the HTC Vive is the headset of choice for developers.

Wait.. the Vive can do AR? I didn't know it was see though. Are they sure they are not working on VR and don't know that those are two different things?

The Vive has a single passthrough camera mounted center/low on the HMD that allows you to see a monoscopic version of the real world, it's not horribly useful.  The Samsung GearVR has the same feature using the phone's built-in camera in passthrough mode.

If I had to guess I'd say Apple is developing with ARkit and the Mira Prism adapter.  Or their own version of the same thing, it's not exactly complex.  But there's no advantage to using the Vive to develop for AR.
