    Sketchy report says Apple AR-VR headset behind schedule
    https://9to5mac.com/2021/04/26/apple-ar-vr-headset-2/

    "This is somewhat ambiguous, as Apple is believed to be working on two separate – and very different – products in this field.


    The first is a combined virtual reality/augmented reality headset, similar to Microsoft’s HoloLens 2. This is essentially a VR headset with external cameras to give it AR capabilities also.


    The second is a pure AR device, with a form factor much closer to traditional glasses. This is the device that has been dubbed Apple Glasses, and will reportedly only work as a companion device to the iPhone in much the same way as the first generations of the Apple Watch."

    I believe, this has been my stated suspicion for some time now.

    This may be a game changer for the expansion of AR in the future
    It is the fundamental change needed in display tech to make all the wonderful things we have been expecting possible.

    Not sure if this was mentioned elsewhere, but I just caught this very nice "Holo" sale on namebio (sadly, not mine...) :

    You probably remember me being a bit skeptical on the breath of HOLO names.
    I have over the last year revised my thinking on it.
    Originally, I just seen AR/HOLO as a bit further down the road. But with Apple about to make a strong mark with what I call pseudo-AR or better known as mixed reality in a goggle format as compared to glasses, I can see it a bit stronger and sooner than I imagined.

    However, that sale, if it is accurate, puzzles me.
    But I'm going to guess it's going to a 3D anatomy software company.
    Looks like it's in escrow as it's parked at a blank sedoparking page.
    Good price. And in thinking about the price to understand it, what similar name would describe it better if what I think it's going to be used for is true ? Then it makes sense.

    Incredibly insightful conversation on why the convergence of AR, VR, XR and Cryptoassets is inevitable.

    Hence why I bought these a while back

    ARCryptoassets.com
    VRCryptoassets.com
    XRCryptoassets.com

    mind blowing stuff!!!

    If you look at the site it is re-directing to, it doesn't appear to have anything to do with VR/AR. Holo of course is a supremely brandable word.

    I was just about to update with the same !
    https://www.mindvalley.com/seminars/holobody/

    But, I would not be sure this is the end stage for the name. Probably the beginning.
    We will need to keep tabs on it.

    I hope so. It will be a big let down if they don't announce the headset. That week is going to be big for me - lockdown ends, my 50th birthday, but Apple announcing a VR/AR headset would be the biggest! I think I'll be able to start planning my retirement when Apple joins the party.

    You would rather them launch Apple style with a complete, solid product with ecosystem potential, trust me. If they push back for another year you will still be able to plan your retirement lol... In fact its probably for the better. There have been some great developments lately in AR/VR tech that would make any hardware Co want to push back their plans so that they can release an infinitely better product than their competitors.

    Well, you have a lot to look forward to. 50 ! OH MY... I'll send you some depends(adult diaper).LOL
    Crossed that border some time ago.

    I have it in my head that Apple will have more to say about the TV segment.
    And perhaps a teaser for now but announce/release for pre-order the HMD in a few months, with a release before xmas. If they have a lot to say about TV, they will not want to muddy the headlines and thinking.

    The scale of releasing this kind of thing for Apple with a ecosystem is pretty massive for them and they are known for getting it mostly right the first time. So it's always well thought out without surprises.

    I think covid has put kinks in production where they would have a hard time knowing when all their ducks would line up for a release in the future. But they are likely close enough now to move forward.

    One would still think that you would want this in the hands of dev's to get some software going in a 'pre-release' to them before consumer. Unless they have been doing that in secret ?

    Only a few days away so perhaps we will know soon.

    Do you know if that was at auction ?
    I was looking at the lander and know those kind of funds do not verify quickly.
    Have to keep a eye on that one as well.

    I believe this was an expired auction.

    You are not making that judgement from the lander are you ?
    I think that lander is a generic park with no content. Even though it says expired auction.
    Well, if it was a drop, that might be the largest auction of a drop I have ever seen.
    Normally, anyone that interested finds a way to contact the previous owner and makes a very nice direct offer and pay the fees.
