Seeing a New Reality with Apple

Contest Brief

With the rise of augmented and virtual reality systems, Apple has decided to join the party -- although, it may take a couple more years before the world-renowned tech giant releases their own VR/AR product. The current designs and technology we have today? They’re not impressed.

In fact, they recently filed a patent for a design that uses a catadioptric system for their VR/AR model, which could slim down and reduce the weight added by magnifying glasses, the lenses used in current VR/AR models. A recent article by Nick Statt on The Verge discusses the possibilities for Apple’s potential technology.

What would the new Apple Smart Headpiece look like?

Share with us your 3D models!

*NOTE: PLEASE LOOK AT CURRENT VR/AR HEADGEAR, AND INNOVATE FROM THE SAID TECH DESIGN. WE ARE IN SEARCH OF VR/AR HEADGEAR, NOT JUST REGULAR GLASSES.

    Funny enough by pure coincidence I watched many youtube on emerging VR headsets last night. The key imo is in a couple of specific factors needed for VR hetset design and also whether the new technology can deliver. I can already "see" the design in my head for a slimline stylishly contoured headset and also how it would process the images given what I read online about apple's efforts. Anyway, just some thoughts, I hope all those who posted sunglasses wake up, lol.

      Continued: Ergonomics given the intended usage situation, that is a big factor which if unknown makes designing a housing like shooting in the dark at an unknown target.

      Yeah I agree with you. It needs far more hardware to do vr device and cant be crammed in sunglasses :D Also Apple stated that they want their device to be the stylish as you can and it will be build when technology evolves. With that being said i still see their vr as a just a bit thicker sunglasses. Contest is tempting!
