Crucially, a company that has a bite apple has more than one trick up its sleeve. In fact, in order to be able to follow the development of technology and make life easier for the followers of the brand, the company prioritizes innovation. The latest news is that Apple is planning to turn self-driving cars into virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) cabins.
According to the Apple patent, the main goal is to provide users with entertainment during their robotic journeys. So if self-driving and unmanned cars are a total alternative to traditional vehicles, this innovation from Apple will give us a way to keep us occupied along the way.
Apple imagines the cars of the future
Concretely, VR headset wearers can be left to lose in a game where they will have the possibility to invite friends and celebrities to be their virtual travel companions. Alternatively, VR headsets can turn your trip into a more relaxing adventure with enchanting visuals. For example, it will be possible to display an illusion interior on the screens to give the impression of spaciousness to the occupants or to give them the illusion that they are in a luxury car.
If you wish, you are also entitled to take a boat ride on the river. And if you like exciting experiences, the VR headset will immerse you in car chases or hordes of zombies in a post-apocalyptic world. In addition, Apple will not only spoil you with a visual sight, but also plans to give you a true 4D experience.
Apple VR headsets provide a 4D experience
In order to make the trip as boring as possible, Apple will make sure that the virtual reality experience is coordinated with an active seat and motion sensors to synchronize the virtual objects with the movements of the car in the real world. To be more specific, the car’s HVAC system will blow air in your face, speakers will pump out surround sound, and the seat will irritate you with its internal motors.
However, this is a patent and we have no guarantee that we will see Apple integrate these systems into an actual car. Note that Apple is working on Project Titan, so seeing all of these scenarios come true isn’t impossible.
