The Apple headset will include gloves to detect movements

Spotlight on Apple viewer – now known on the Net with the nickname of “Apple Glasses” -. Apparently, in fact, the Cupertino company has obtained a patent for the use of gloves to detect skin-to-skin contact in AR / VR. An accessory that, in combination with the viewer, could be used to move a cursor, make a selection and so on. Actions that may require skin contact just when the user is wearing the headset. Let’s try to understand something more.

Apple: The headset could work in conjunction with a pair of gloves

“Apple’s invention covers devices and methods for detecting contact between a first body part and a second body part. The sensing circuit can be configured to sense a signal to the sensing electrode (for example, configured to contact the second body part) in response to a trigger signal applied to the triggering electrode (for example, configured to contact the first part of the body) “. So we read in the text reported by Patently Apple, which reports the Apple patent for its VR gloves to be associated with the mixed reality viewer.

Additionally, the patent speculates that a user could use two Apple Watch-like wearables to detect skin-to-skin contact. In this case, one smartwatch could be used for tracking and the other could implement the gesture. Another hypothesis, however, replaces the watch with a ring that can work in conjunction with VR gloves. And if you’re wondering what all this is for, here’s Apple’s answer: answer calls, make calls, launch programs, make selections, and more. In any case, it is good to remember that this is only a patent, and that this does not mean that the company will actually launch these accessories. One thing is certain, though: Apple’s mixed reality headset is preparing to arrive.
