However, there are few things that don't make much sense to me.
- The "N301" headset is supposed to support both AR and VR, although these concepts are quite radically different. For one, an AR headset must be transparent and a VR headset must be opaque.
- It is supposed to be autonomous, so I take that it does not require a smartphone or PC. So it would be powered by its own OS, have storage, CPU, GPU, RAM + display. Some prototype variant would be paired with a dedicated "hub" (why not just a Mac or Apple TV??) making it "blow anything else on the market out of the water". I'm not sure what "anything else" refers to here. Standalone headsets I suppose, like the Oculus Go. In that case that doesn't mean much.
- the headset is supposed "to feature ultra-high-resolution screens that will make it almost impossible for a user to differentiate the virtual world from the real one.". Yeah sure... Even the most powerful GPU cannot do that, but a standalone headset could do it? Or are they only talking about picture quality? Even so, no display even comes close to the real world, let alone a display that is so close to your eyes.
- N301 would be focused on gaming. Color me skeptical. Apple has never produced any hardware focused on gaming, and they don't really understand gaming in general.
