Zuckerberg mocked the technology used in Apple glasses: like wearing an Apple Watch on his face
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in an interview with The Verge that the head-up display (HUD) technology is not enough to support augmented reality (AR) applications, just like wearing an Apple Watch on his face. Rumors say that Apple’s first-generation “Apple Glasses” will use head-up display technology.
Zuckerberg explained that the transition from virtual reality (VR) products like Oculus to portable AR devices is a particularly challenging problem that requires hardware manufacturers to solve. He believes that the AR experience will only be good when a pair of “normal-looking glasses” can project the hologram onto the real world scene. This level of precision requires powerful computing power, far beyond the capabilities of existing hardware.
Apple is one of the few large technology companies rumored to be developing head-mounted displays. Some rumors claim that Apple’s first-generation “Apple Glasses” will use an interface similar to a head-up display as an intermediate link to achieve an immersive environment. The technology blog The Information reported at the end of last year that Apple plans to release AR headsets in 2022 and then launch a pair of smart glasses in 2023. Well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously predicted that the headset released by Apple would hand over computing and other tasks to the iPhone, while the glasses would only serve as a display device.
” The quickest way many people try to take is basically not to project a complete hologram into the real world, but just to display some head-up information. I call this design an Apple Watch on your face ,” Zha Kerberg said, “I personally don’t think this design is particularly attractive. This is not a product that we are particularly excited to develop. Maybe others will do. It is not suitable for the social use we care about most. .”
