Apple’s mixed reality headsets could allow wearers to see invisible things like fires, gas leaks: report

Apple’s new patent application suggests its mixed reality (MR) headset could allow users to see things unseen, according to a report. It highlights that users might be able to see gas leaks and Wi-Fi signals. The MR headset would use additional signals to enable this feature. It could also allow musicians to tune their instruments by showing the sound waves. It could also track heat patterns, which could help detect possible fires. By creating an augmented reality (AR) overlay, the headset could also allow wearers to see inside closets.

According to a report by Patently Apple, a new patent application from the Cupertino tech giant reveals that the company’s MR headset could allow users to see things invisible to the naked eye. The headset is rumored to help wearers detect gas leaks and Wi-Fi signals to adjust the location of the router.

The report suggests that Apple’s MR headset will also track heat patterns to detect possible fires around wearers to ensure safety. It is said to use an infrared sensor to allow wearers to see heat, which could help them detect fires through walls. The headset would create an overlay on the AR view of the user’s location to show things unseen.

According to the report, it will also visualize sound waves to help musicians tune their instruments. It is said to create an overlay on the sine wave for the correct note. The Apple headset is rumored to allow wearers to see behind closed closet doors by creating an AR overlay. It would match the stored video from when its user opens a closet with their current view and position.

Recently, it was reported that Apple may launch its MR headset in 2023. The company is reportedly working on three new headsets codenamed N301, N602, and N421. The company’s first MR headset is reportedly called Apple Reality Pro, which is expected to compete with Facebook’s upcoming AR-VR headset.
