Apple’s augmented reality attempts have reached a crucial stage (via Information). The prototypes of the semi-transparent lenses go beyond the prototype to become a test production.
Technical validation test underway on AR objectives
The phase known as the technical validation test (EVT), would have started in May. It involves the production of thousands of units. The design has also been confirmed. Despite this important step, it is understood that the product is still one or two years away from being ready for mass production. The lens work is played in a Foxconn factory in Chengdu, China – the site where most iPad productions take place.
