Apple researching smart glasses with holography to keep weight down, image quality up
Publication/Creation DateApril 16 2020
DescriptionApple has been working on a set of augmented reality wearable peripherals for some time. A constant question about any future "Apple Glasses" peripheral has been over how Apple can maintain its preference for sleek, high-performance systems instead of the bulk in some present headsets. A new patent provides part of the answer.
"Optical System with Dispersion Compensation," is a patent application that describes a method that combines a small "holographic optical element" which may project onto a reflective surface. So the holographic projector could be in the rim of Apple Glasses, and the fully or semi-reflective surface could be the lenses in front of the user's eyes.
