Workers are walking into glass walls at Apple's new campus

  Workers are walking into glass walls at Apple's new campus When Albert Salvador, Cupertino’s building official, visited Apple’s new spaceship building last year, he worried that people would walk into the cafeteria’s glass walls because they couldn’t distinguish them from the equally clear automatic doors. After he brought up the issue, a contractor walked straight into the glass.

Another patent for an Apple -created VR solution has just been unearthed, and this one aims to solve travel sickness in a future where nobody’s driving your car. The future of travel suggests that, when autonomous cars become reality The Byton is a prime example of wanting to turn the driving experience into a moving living room, and it looks like Apple is happy to endorse such visions of the future with its new patent . Apple ’ s patent outlines how a VR system could be used in an automobile to help combat the feeling of nausea some passengers get while in cars.

An Apple patent application has surfaced that shows the company is developing a Virtual Reality ( VR ) system that is meant to be used in self-driving cars that could mitigate motion sickness . According to the patent published by the US Patent and Trademark Office, the tech giant notes that The patent application also highlighted that the system could include a VR headset that would display the images on interior walls of the vehicle.

The future of travel suggests that, when autonomous cars become reality, we’ll all be sat busying ourselves with entertainment devices. The Byton is a prime example of wanting to turn the driving experience into a moving living room, and it looks like Apple is happy to endorse such visions of the future with its new patent.

Apple’s patent outlines how a VR system could be used in an automobile to help combat the feeling of nausea some passengers get while in cars. The system is designed to monitor for signs of motion sickness and then mitigate against it. Instead of looking at a static image on a laptop screen or phone or reading the pages of a book – all things that make people feel carsick – Apple plans to use a headset to project this image in front of the vehicle.

Amazon’s latest patent is a delivery drone that understands when you shout at it

  Amazon’s latest patent is a delivery drone that understands when you shout at it Amazon has filed a patent for a delivery drone that responds when you call or wave at it.The patent was initially filed in July 2016 and published this week. “The human recipient and / or the other humans can communicate with the vehicle using human gestures to aid the vehicle along its path to the delivery location,” the patent states. The patent gives an example of a “shooing” motion, which the drone would recognize and stop moving closer. The drone would also then adjust its speed and the direction it’s moving in. If a person waves their arms in a welcoming manner, the drone can interpret the gesture as an instruction to deliver the package.

An Apple patent application has surfaced that shows the company is developing a neat Virtual Reality ( VR ) system that is meant to be used in self-driving cars that could mitigate motion sickness . According to the patent published by the US Patent and Trademark Office, the tech giant notes that embodiments of the VR system as described herein may be implemented in autonomous or "self-driving" vehicles where all occupants are passengers, Patently Apple reported on Friday.

New Delhi, Apr 01 (ANI): Apple has patented VR system meant to counter motion sickness in self-driving cars in future. The tech giants VR system is expected to use variety of applications to make passengers feel at ease. The system will also use variety of sensors to determine if the passengers are feeling ill. New Delhi, May 09 (ANI): Microsoft has been trying to build a lighter version of Windows for more than 10 years without success. The latest Updated: 4 weeks, 1 day ago.

Apple envisions a situation where “virtual content appears as a distant object stabalised,” while “visual cues of the real environment are moving in the field of view of the passenger”. Personally, that sounds more nauseating than normal but research suggests this could actually cut down on motion sickness.

Another scenario in Apple’s motion sickness-fighting patent suggests that an autonomous car wouldn’t even need windows, and that would cut down on feelings of motion sickness too. Instead of windows, virtual reality displays could show passengers what’s outside and even give them the illusion of being in a space larger than they actually are.

Thankfully the more sensible, and less frightening, method of combating motion sickness could be to create a VR experience that matches the motions of the car, reacting to how it drives. Unfortunately, that’s not as straightforward as it sounds. Not only would every headset have to be fine-tuned to the car itself, but each experience would need to match what passengers are feeling too, otherwise things can become very messy indeed.

Apple Watch With Face ID In The Works?

The patent application also highlighted that the system could include a VR headset that would display the images on interior walls of the vehicle.

Somewhat bizarrely, Apple also mentions that it could use a car’s systems to create realistic environments for VR experiences. While ideas that the car’s AC system could be used to simulate virtual wind sound cool, the thought of “driving through a post-apocalyptic wasteland with zombies attacking” certainly does not sound like my cup of tea on the way to work in the morning.

Apple has been working on various VR projects for a very long time – if you go by its various patents that stretch back beyond 2016. However, it’s still yet to announce anything regarding the technology beyond potential glimpses of what can be done with ARKit. If this latest patent is anything to go by, it’s clear Apple is looking into VR as a viable platform for the future, rather than a single simple headset.

Apple drew up a patent for a new kind of blood pressure monitor .
Two years ago, a handful of Apple employees dreamed up a device that would take the company beyond the world of healthcare apps, and into healthcare products. The design they had patented is for a wearable blood pressure monitor — a cuff, equipped with a sensor (or several) that track when a wearer’s blood pressure might be spiking too high or swimming too low. To put a tech spin on things, they mention that the device (might) sport a touchscreen, and (might) be bluetooth compatible.
