According to reports, the Apple VR/AR mixed reality headset is designed to be a precursor to Apple Glass. The AR lenses are supposed to offer an “optical see-through AR experience,” according to Ming-Chi Kuo. However Apple Glasses may not arrive for a long time, with Apple reportedly delaying the project due to technical challenges. For many workers in the virtual reality field, this is a conceivable future in the coming years. Especially since, contrary to what one might think, low-end virtual reality models cost less to produce than smartphones.

The gaming headsets utilize the console’s power to provide graphics above what standalone headsets can manage with their mobile chipsets for a cheaper price than PC VR gaming rigs. Unless you want to experience mixed reality or prefer VR apps and experiences to VR games, the PlayStation VR ecosystem is a great way to experience VR using some of your existing hardware.

The scents reach the device’s wearer via an actuator and heat source that starts to melt the wax, causing it to release its scent, like a candle. The researchers claim it only takes 1.44 seconds for a scent to be generated and reach the device wearer’s nose. To make the scent stop or transition to a different one—say you’ve left the meadow and are now walking along a paved road upon which there’s a chocolate factory (mmmm)—a copper coil kicks a magnet to cover the wax and cool it down. Gravity Sketch, utilized by Ford and GM, allows designers to draw lines in the air, reshape those lines, connect panels and choose accents for its vehicles, without ever turning a screw or lifting a pencil. It also allows designers to take a 2D drawing off the page and create it in 3D.

“EON would like to be able to create applications for our businesses and industry,” she said. Marcin Kasica, EON Reality’s global education and training director, was the first of EON’s experts to visit Davenport to launch the inaugural class earlier this month. The native of Poland said the students will become specialists in creating VR and AR applications for commercial, education and entertainment uses.

Eastern Iowa gets in on ground floor of Virtual Reality

VR is being deployed in a variety of industries including gaming, automotive, healthcare, retail, tourism, real estate, architecture, engineering, education, and training. Your health and wellness is unique to you, and the products and services we review may not be right for your circumstances. Another consideration is that the therapist may not be able to reach the individual should a problem arise. “If the therapist is on the other side of the country or the world, or if the person they are counseling is there under the veil of anonymity, this raises very serious ethical questions and problems,” she says. “With [any type of] therapy, it’s important to ensure that the patient is safe. Anonymity can be a real problem.” As with many emerging technologies, there will likely also be ethical considerations to keep in mind as this treatment becomes more widely available, too.

The team says they’re working on solutions to make the interface run at lower temperatures. They also have yet to figure out how to program the odor generators in a way that would seamlessly integrate with VR headsets, and release the relevant scents at appropriate times. It may make users nervous to have a device on their face that gets hot enough to melt wax. The researchers say their interface won’t burn wearers—or even come close to doing so—thanks to an open design that ventilates warm air.

The refresh rate will need to be high enough that lag and motion sickness are kept to an absolute minimum, and rival headsets typically aim for 90Hz or higher. That will apparently help bring down the weight of the headset, and could also offset any concerns of having a warm battery lodged onto your head. The Information claimed in May 2022 that Apple’s former design guru Jony Ive has been brought in as a consultant for the headset. Given Ive’s penchant for incredibly thin and light devices, we wouldn’t be surprised if the rumors that the headset will be super-lightweight prove to be correct.

Supervise and Moderate VR Use in Classrooms

It’s worth noting that analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that Apple may delay mass production of the Apple headset by 1-2 months, citing the lack of “iPhone moment excitement” among other factors. These include the rumored high $3,000 price, as well as “the economic downturn, compromises on some hardware specifications for mass production (such as weight) and the readiness of the ecosystem and applications.” Not that Apple has confirmed any of this, since it hasn’t even officially announced the device. We do know that Apple has big plans for augmented reality and a VR/AR headset could seemingly be the first real Apple product to enter that space. It already looks like Apple is outfitting its headset with a ton of great features, but there are still a few extras we would love to see.

There’s also a streaming-only subscription that comes in at a cheaper price than the regular subscription that gives you access to all their scenes.

Applications of Virtual Reality (VR)

And thanks to being in the PlayStation ecosystem there are exclusive games like Horizon Call of the Mountain and the ability to play Gran Turismo 7 in VR. Combined with the VR tech, the PSVR 2 is one of the very best and overall affordable virtual reality systems you can buy today.
