The problem with portable headsets is that it can be cumbersome, especially for glasses wearers. This means that the extra weight of the frame and glasses can become too heavy to be used for a long period of time. However, it seems that Apple could have a unique and novel solution to this problem: holographic imaging.
This emerges from a recently discovered patent by AppleInsider in which Apple appears to be investigating the holographic imaging that could potentially be used to replace displays used in these types of wearables. It has been suggested that using holographic imaging instead of conventional displays could solve certain functional problems with such devices.
AppleInsider, for example, points out how changes to optical components can affect size, weight and performance. Costs for the headset. The use of more traditional display components also influences the design of the headset in such a way that the components have to be placed further away from the user. This can also put more pressure on the user's face and make it uncomfortable to wear for a longer period of time.
It is rumored that Apple has been working on an AR headset for some time. Some rumors claim that it could actually hit the market in 2020 (some say 2021). However, this is a patent, and it remains to be seen whether it will become a reality or not, but it could get more people to introduce such devices.
