Apple’s Vision Pro Headset: Visualizing the Invisible

Before the launch of Apple’s Vision Pro headset, there were concerns about whether the device could find a strong “killer app.” However, Apple seems to have solved this issue with a fresh patent that reveals a groundbreaking feature. Future iterations of the Vision Pro could allow users to see the invisible energy that surrounds them.

No, we’re not talking about some kind of New Age mysticism. Instead, Apple is working on enabling the Vision Pro to visualize things like electrical currents, radio signals, Wi-Fi output, and more. This remarkable ability could have various practical applications, such as helping engineers diagnose problems in your home or empowering individuals to fix minor issues themselves.

But that’s not all. Apple’s patent also explores how the Vision Pro headset could provide users with enhanced experiences by detecting invisible signals. The patent describes how “billboards, posters, or other print or screen media in the physical environment may emit non-visible light such as [infrared] light that can be detected and visualized.” Imagine watching 3D movies or commercials in augmented reality with the Vision Pro.

To achieve this, the Vision Pro relies on a wide range of sensors. These sensors can detect touch, sound, heart rates, radio waves, and more. Once a sensor captures an invisible signal, the device creates a depth map of the surrounding environment and searches for contextual objects near the signal’s location. For instance, if it detects internet signals, the headset may look for a Wi-Fi router. The Vision Pro then overlays a visualization of the signal in augmented reality at the appropriate place.

Interestingly, Apple explains that these sensors don’t necessarily have to be on the headset itself. They could be housed on a connected device like an Apple Watch or an iPhone. This approach offloads some processing power from the headset, ensuring optimized performance and temperature management.

While this technology is not limited to invisible signals, it can also extend to physical objects that are unseen by the wearer of the headset. Apple envisions that it could be used to detect “hidden objects such as objects with known locations that are obscured from view by other physical objects.” This feature could have practical applications in navigation systems, including Apple’s rumored self-driving car project.

As with any patent, it’s uncertain whether Apple will bring this idea to life. However, if it does, it could open up exciting new possibilities for the Vision Pro headset. The Vision Pro 2, set to launch in the future, may provide further insights into the realization of this technology.

In conclusion, Apple’s Vision Pro headset has the potential to revolutionize how we perceive the world. With its ability to visualize invisible signals and objects, the Vision Pro could empower individuals to solve problems, enhance entertainment experiences, and contribute to advancements in various industries. While we eagerly await the arrival of the Vision Pro 2, we can’t help but imagine the fantastic applications this technology could bring to our lives.
