Will Apple revolutionize virtual reality with a helmet driven by eye movement?

At Apple, a virtual reality headset would be in the advanced prototype stage. It would be equipped with a revolutionary system that would allow its user control by eye movement, and even by blinking, combining iris recognition authentication.

Apple could soon revolutionize the virtual reality headset market. According to the famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (TF Securities), the headset that Apple is about to release in 2022 will be able to analyze the user through the analysis of his iris but also to ensure an unprecedented follow-up of the eyes during all his activity. According to the latest information gleaned by this specialist of the apple brand, Apple would indeed have a virtual reality helmet and augmented, in the drawers. It could be marketed in 2022.

Attention, this would be a product independent of the project of connected glasses, more general public, which could also be released next year. Will this be enough to finally seduce the general public? This helmet would in any case be a high-end product, presenting several major innovations. The most important would be a sophisticated eye tracking system. The headset will be able at any time to know in which direction its user is looking. It can also intervene at a blink of the eye or even see thanks to the iris recognition.

Revolutionary, Apple’s future virtual reality headset would be piloted by a glance, according to specialist Ming-Chin Kuo.

And actually pay with his virtual reality headset?

From there, the uses could be disrupted. It is, for example, conceivable to see the image optimized where the person looks precisely and, conversely, reduce the quality of the image elsewhere. It could also be considered to display information by fixing a specific point or to validate information or to interact with an element by simply blinking eyes. As for iris recognition, it could make it possible not only to recognize the different users of a helmet but also to validate payments via Apple Pay.

All should integrate two high-resolution screens as well as a home chip, in line with what the American manufacturer offers with its new MacBook. This future headset, a first for Apple, will probably not be very popular, but will certainly pave the way for a new era, in an area that has never really taken off.
