This morning, well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo released the latest research report, which stated that the Apple AR headset will be equipped with an eye-tracking system.
The report predicts that Apple AR headsets will be equipped with an eye-tracking system. The system includes a transmitter and a receiver. It can detect and obtain eye movement information, and then provide users with video, images, and information based on algorithms. The transmitting end provides one or several different wavelengths of invisible light, and the receiving end detects the change of the invisible light reflected by the eyeball and judges the eyeball movement based on the change.
The report predicts that this transmitter may have different wavelengths, so the production process is complicated and time-consuming. In addition, the size and shape requirements of the transmitter module of the head-mounted device are very different from those of general electronic devices, which also increases the difficulty of production. The report believes that the unit price of the transmitter module is high.
According to the report, it is still uncertain whether Apple’s AR headset supports iris recognition, but from the hardware specifications, the eye-tracking system of the headset can support this feature.
The report believes that if the Apple AR headset can realize iris recognition, it is expected to bring the Apple Pay mode to users when using the headset.
