Always on the lookout for the next big thing, Apple might have started taking a look into Augmented Reality using smart glasses. Back in summer Apple CEO Tim Cook was caught saying to the press that Augmented Reality could have a big future and it seems like Apple is starting to get ready for it. According to a Bloomberg report, the Cupertino company has been talking to suppliers and started ordering Near-Eye-Displays for early experiments. The amount ordered suggest that mass production is still far away according to the sources at Apple that talked with Bloomberg.

The sources further reported, that the glasses connect with the iPhone wirelessly, acting as an Augmented Reality extension to the iPhone and projecting images or information onto the glasses. Allegedly it would take Apple at least until 2018 to finish development and the project could even be stopped before. Google failed to succeed with their Google Glass project which was first released in 2013 mostly due to technical problems like insufficient battery life but also because of concerns regarding privacy. The glasses were also criticized for their design.
