Analyst John Prosser posted a video review of the latest leaks and rumors about Apple's smart glasses. He said that he personally saw the prototype, and that he did not make an impression on him - plastic frames instead of metal, no sun lenses, no camera. However, the hardware and software are in a high degree of readiness and if the COVID-19 pandemic does not interfere, the novelty will be officially presented before the end of this year.
The estimated price of Apple Glass is $ 499, they are not able to work without being tied to the iPhone, on which all the calculations take place, by analogy with the Apple Watch. The glasses show the user information on both lenses at once, they are controlled using the new Starboard interface, both from a smartphone and by gestures in front of him. The range of gestures is not limited and you can create your own.
The glasses have only lidar, without the usual camera, so the photo and video functions are not available. But they can scan QR codes and work with 3D sensors like the LiDAR 2020 system for iPad Pro. The use of other capabilities of the ARKit platform is also possible, when glasses help the user to interact with objects in the Internet of Things.
