Default Apple working on VR headset, duel 8k screens

Apple working on VR headset, 8k screen for each eye. Let hope they can pull that off. Should be ready for 2020 sales.

As a fan boy myself, I can assume it wont be overly complicated. Probably dead simple. BUT it will be priced on the high end and probably have a proprietary connector and wont be compatible with anything mainstream. Love them but hate them.

But this can only be good news for long run no matter. Competition is good.

Yep. Apple sells good hardware but you need to have other Apple products to make good use of it. Wouldn't touch it unless they gave me one for free.

Apple wouldn't allow DCS on iTunes store though lol

8K for each eye though is amazing. That will make VR as crisp as most monitors.

Yup...and even after they get busted, they still won't fix the affected products.

I don't have much faith in anything Apple makes being even remotely useful to any of us for DCS, but hopefully its an indication of where the rest of the industry intends to take things.
