Are You Ready for rOS?

Apple intends to succeed where Google has failed with the Google Glass, they are planning to build a new augmented reality headset that may be ready for consumers by 2020. (I already have a not-so-new name for it — iGlass).

 
To show just how serious this is for Apple, the new headset is said to have its own display and processor, unlike what Google is offering with the Daydream and Samsung with the Gear VR. And just like the tvOS and watchOS, Apple would feature a new operating system called rOS, also known as reality OS. Apple hasn’t finalized how users will control the headset and launch apps, but it is investigating touchscreens, Siri voice activation, and head gestures as it creates prototypes.

As usual, Apple is late to the VR party, but in the words of Tim Cook:
“We don’t give a rats about being first”
“We want to be best in creating people’s experiences. Something that you would see out in the market anytime soon would not be something that any of us would be satisfied with.”
 
I must admit that I am interested to see how far Apple could go with this.

So, what do you think?

    I think apple should know what they are about to do in 2020.am just quite and waiting to see the reality by God grace and see if it is real or a wash.and if it is true about what they are about to do believe you me it will be very costly so i think they should know their class and their position in the tech world.
