Apple has purchased a company specializing in lenses for smart glasses that can show enlarged reality sources surpass the real world. Reuters said that Apple probably bought the company Akonia Holographics sometime earlier this year.
Akonia describes its magnified reality lenses as "thin", "transparent" and capable of displaying "vibrant colors, wide field of vision." Two years ago, the company VentureBeat stated that it was aimed at 60-degree field of view – which is small and smaller than most virtual reality headsets. But the company also described the lens in a way that suggested that it provided higher resolution images than its competitors without putting so many visual obstacles between an eye and the real world.
