In June, Apple launched its augmented reality developer kit, ARKit.

Apple sees the AR headset as a successor to the iPhone, the report said. It will also have its own chipset, and an operating system now known as rOS, according to Bloomberg anonymous sources familiar with the device. As of the time of this writing, Apple did not respond to a request for comment.

Apple began developing its own augmented reality platform a couple of years ago and that ended up being ARKit, which now live natively inside devices running iOS 11. Moving that experience to something that lets you keep your hands free will feel more natural and could help push augmented reality into the consumer mainstream.

That Apple is working on an Augmented Reality headset is by now an open secret, after the device was all but confirmed Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

In June 2016, the company won a patent for a device with a wraparound, translucent display. Apple's "rOS" will power the AR headset very much like how watchOS and tvOS powers the Apple Watch and the Apple TV.

VR and AR headsets are beginning to proliferate in the market, but they mostly require another device.

In his interview with Nikkei, Catcher CEO Allen Horng said that his company is now working on an AR device, but stopped short of specifically naming Apple.

"We're already seeing things that will transform the way you work, play, connect and learn", Cook said on a November 3 conference call with analysts. Apple is also reportedly testing different methods for controlling the headsets such as touchscreens and voice activation using Siri. In a recent earnings report, CEO Tim Cook said that the AR technology will "change the way we use technology forever". In addition, Apple is also prototyping applications, which include AR versions of existing Apple apps like Maps and Messages and new apps like a virtual meeting room and 360-degree video playback.

Robots are the next step in using technology to explore sexuality.

Building a mixed reality ecosystem, all the way from making devices that are easy and fun to wear, to answering security concerns, to powering those devices with affordable hardware, to creating applications for the devices that people will want to use, is not going to be easy.
