Apple VR headset may monitor user’s pose using neural networks

Apple’s VR or AR headset could move an avatar of the user based on monitoring the user’s body movements, while its battery life could be lengthened by some clever data transmission techniques.

Foveated displays and smart eye tracking could help reduce wireless data usage for VR. Foveated displays and smart eye tracking could help reduce wireless data usage for VR.

Apple is believed to be in development of a virtual reality or augmented reality headset, as well as AR smart glasses known as “Apple Glass.” In entering a slowly growing field of human-computer interaction, Apple is also attempting to engineer solutions to a variety of problems, to make its products stand out from other head-mounted systems.
