The headset developed by Sony will have two ultra-high-resolution displays and multiple external cameras to depict an augmented reality (AR) “pass-through mode,” according to a Bloomberg report. Apple, Sony, and Disney have yet to reveal further details on the talks.
The headset, potentially named Apple Reality Pro, will allow users to utilize real-world objects in order to trigger a VR reaction.
It will feature an interface similar to the iOS but in 3D, advanced eye and hand tracking systems, and the option to toggle between AR and VR – without needing a physical controller.
Users can also connect their Mac to the device, see Mac’s display in VR and control it using a physical keyboard and mouse.
Apple is also looking into updating its own Apple TV+ service to be compatible with the headset and integrating Facetime video chatting features into the device.
Retailing at $3,000, the MR headset is expected to launch in Apple’s spring event later this year.
