Judging by the recent actions and delight of Tim Cook by playing Pokemon Go (play yet?), Apple is preparing something special in the field of augmented reality. This time, the company lured the AR expert not just from some startup, but directly from NASA.
According to the Bloomberg news agency, Apple's Jeff Norris will take up the post of a senior specialist for augmented reality in a team led by Mike Rockwell, who previously worked for Dolby Labs. It is not known what exactly the department is working on, rumors go all the different: from special glasses under the Apple brand to the technologies of the camera of the new iPhone.
A new employee of the company worked at NASA since 1999 and worked on the development of augmented reality for its application in space, developed software for rover management, and also participated in the creation of points that allow you to "walk" around Mars. Apparently, Apple plans to release something incredible, once it hires engineers from NASA.
Apple declined to comment on the appointment of Norris, but did not refute this information in any way.
