Recently, a new patent of Apple has been exposed. According to the description of the patent, it is prepared for the upcoming Apple virtual display glasses. It is reported that this patent is mainly developed to solve the problem of a large amount of computing required by enhanced display and virtual reality system, which will make Apple’s virtual reality glasses have more perfect functions and experience.
The patent is called “relay base and base station with directional wave formation based on location information”. In the patent, apple describes a head mounted display with wireless design, which is powered by a built-in battery pack, and the calculation data is processed by the wireless base station. In short, the user’s operation is transmitted to the base station through low delay wireless transmission, and then the base station transmits the calculated picture to the glasses. In the whole process, the glasses are only a relay and display device.
Apple hopes to solve the problem that it can’t have both performance and portability through such a design, and make the product run longer wirelessly. At the same time, the patent also applies beamforming technology to enhance the signal strength, maintain the stability of the picture, reduce interference, reduce the power required for base station operation, and enhance the privacy of the signal.
However, at least for the moment, this is only a preliminary idea of apple. There are still many problems to be solved in order to carry out business, such as the layout of base station, transmission in complex environment, and how to keep the picture uninterrupted when users move between different base stations. But it is at least a feasible solution for virtual reality wireless devices.
