Apple AR Headset to Feature Hand Gesture and Object Detection [Report]

Posted by · 1869 views · Translate
Apple's rumored AR headset will feature hand gesture and object detection, according to a new report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

We predict that the structured light of the AR/MR headset can detect not only the position change of the user or other people’s hand and object in front of the user's eyes but also the dynamic detail change of the hand (just like the iPhone's Face ID/structured light/Animoji can detect user's dynamic expression change). Capturing the details of hand movement can provide a more intuitive and vivid human-machine UI (for example, detecting the user's hand from a clenched fist to open and the balloon [image] in hand flying away).

Apple will purportedly incorporate four sets of 3D sensors into its headset that are of higher caliber than the one found in current iPhones. Kuo believes the quality of this human-machine user interface will be key to the success of the headset. Other interface abilities are said to include iris recognition, voice control, skin detection, expression detection, and spatial detection.

It's rumored that Apple will release its first AR headset next year with a second generation device already under development for 2024.
