Apple Issues Patent for VR HMD Goggles

Apple has added another bizarre patent to it’s collection; a head-mounting display with head-tracking technology. The unit would be intended to reduce viewer fatigue and disorientation by simulating a theater or other viewing environment. The wearer of the VR device could pick a seat in the fake theater and be bale to manipulate an image, zoom in and out, and look around using a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope. The whole thing comes packed in to a pair of goggles you can see a patent design for above. No word on when and if they plan on bringing this thing into the real world. Shades of Wii, only nuttier.
