According to the rumors, Apple is working on quite a few wearable tech devices. This includes a potential AR/VR headset and a pair of smart AR glasses, but it seems that isn’t all. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who put together an expected roadmap of Apple’s AR efforts, he seems to believe that Apple could be working on a pair of smart contact lenses.
However, before you get too excited, know that Kuo states that there is currently no visibility yet with regards to the launch schedule, but suggests that it will most likely ship after 2030, which means that we’re definitely in for a very long wait, and that’s even if the tech will debut in the first place.
That being said, it’s not such an outlandish idea. If the AR glasses rumors are true, we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple would be interested in shrinking down the tech even further where in contact lens form, it could appeal to people who don’t normally wear glasses or who don’t like the idea of glasses.
It does raise the question of privacy and also what happens if you lose them, but as far as technology is concerned, it could be an impressive accomplishment. Either way, since this is way too far ahead in the future, we probably shouldn’t get our hopes up too high just yet.
