30 strange facts you didn't know about DNA

  30 strange facts you didn't know about DNA The human body holds a lot of mysteries, and the world's greatest researchers never cease to dig into the building blocks of life: DNA. From detecting a risk for a certain disease or solving a criminal case, the discovery of DNA has forever changed our lives. But if you thought you already knew everything about this integral piece of our bodies, think again. Prepare to be amazed by these strange facts about what scientists James Watson and Francis Crick defined as the "secret of life."

An analyst expects the first mixed reality headset for 2022 - later glasses and even AR contact lenses. He was often right in the past. Das Apple AR-Headset in einer Patentskizze. © USPTO The Apple AR headset in a patent sketch.

The technology analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known as the “Apple Oracle”, identified three phases in the market launch of Apple devices for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). The “helmet” that Kuo sees on the market by 2022 should offer experiences in both forms. After the headset, Apple is said to be bringing out pure AR glasses. In ten years, there could be AR contact lenses from Apple, according to Kuo.

While the current prototype should weigh around 230 grams, the final version could weigh less. Kuo speaks of around 115 grams and the display should be made of micro-OLED. The "helmet" has a technology that enables both VR and AR experiences, it is said. The scene uses the term "Mixed Reality" (MR) for this. Support for AR is limited, Kuo speculates. The product with the code name N301 is portable and has its own computing and storage hardware.

That explains the high prices that are going on for the wearable. At first it was said that it should cost 1,000 US dollars at market launch. One of the last reports spoke of a purchase price of around $ 3,000 for the Apple MR Heaset . It said that most of the glasses were made of fabric to save weight. Technically, there was talk of two 8k displays and more than a dozen sensors and cameras for motion detection and to reproduce the real environment in the glasses. A drawing of an alleged prototype showed a device that is more reminiscent of ski goggles than a helmet. Allegedly the headset is already in production .

Apple Glasses N421 at the same time as Apple Car

could release a folding iPhone in 2023

Illustrative photo. Apple could manufacture a foldable iPhone and market it by 2023, as explained by an analyst who points out that the American giant must master the technology and see if its competitor Samsung manages to innovate by lowering costs in this telephone sector foldable.

There is always speculation about Apple Glasses. It's about glasses for which the special functions are not as obvious as the headset. As expected, these are based exclusively on AR tasks. The product with the code name N421 belongs to the group of accessories and will probably not work without an iPhone.

Kuo states that the release date will be "by 2025". Since the date overlaps with the

data for an Apple Car that has been rumored again and again, it is conceivable that the two products complement each other. As a “one more thing”, the glasses could be published in addition to the car in order to show driving information for the wearer there. Of course this is pure speculation. This also applies to the prices, at the moment sums of around $ 500 are in circulation.

No science fiction: Apple plans AR contact lenses Between 2030 and 2040 Apple should bring contact lenses with augmented reality functions to the market. Kuo suspects they'll need an iPhone for connectivity, just like the Apple Watch did in the beginning. The lenses don't seem to have a fixed schedule yet. It sounds more like a desired product that Apple would like to offer in the future. Given the time horizon and the speed of technological development, it is difficult to make predictions.

While the leaker J.Prosser assumes that the

Apple Glasses will be presented to the public this year, other s will be the MR headsets . Only the iPhone manufacturer itself knows when Apple will actually show which products.
