Apple's rumored smart glasses: 3D cameras, no display

Apple rumored to not have a dedicated display on its upcoming smart glasses, but will include 3D cameras

Apple is rumored to release their new smart glasses or AR headset later this year, and now The Financial Times are reporting that the iPhone maker is making a pair of AR-powered smart glasses, lining up with the various rumors that Apple is set to crank the dial to 11 later this year.


Apple is looking at multiple ways of delivering its glasses, with one design featuring 3D cameras and wait for it... no display on the device itself. There's no final design just yet, as Apple would be keeping this under wraps more so than any other launch in their history. The report states: "A particular area of experimentation, people familiar with the matter say, is a pair of AR glasses that might move cameras, sensors and screens from the smartphone to the face. Yet despite the excitement surrounding ARKit, internally the company is still not sure what the most compelling application for such a headset might be".

We should expect the company to unveil their next-gen iPhone sometime next month, with the purported iPhone X and iPhone 8 to be unveiled alongside next-gen smart glasses. It's an exciting time to be a technology enthusiast, that's for sure.
