According to foreign media reports, predicted by Cook for the next iPhone Apple mixed reality (MR) headset, may be named & ldquo; Reality Pro & rdquo;, is expected to be unveiled at an event this spring, and began shipping in the fall, the price is will be around $ 3,000.
The main selling point of Apple's MR headset is the eye-tracking and hand-tracking features.The device itself has built-in sensors to read eye movements, and users can control the device by staring at items on the screen, while pinching their thumbs and index fingers together to activate tasks. By contrast, current VR headsets largely rely on handles for control.
In order to enhance the realism of the virtual environment, Apple will import silicon-based OLED technology in the MR headset.
Silicon-based OLED technology, also known as Micro OLED technology, has a monocrystalline silicon chip as its substrate and OLED as its display front-end. Silicon-based OLED brings together almost all the advantages of OLED and LCD, taking into account high brightness, high color gamut, high contrast ratio, and long life, making it the preferred display device for high-end MR/VR.
The introduction of many new technologies and materials has led to the high cost of Apple's MR headset, which is difficult to achieve profitability even if it is priced at $3,000.
Of course, profitability in the short term is not the primary purpose of Apple's MR headset, and Apple hopes to sell 1 million units of the device in its first year.
