Apple is researching technology to allow an “Apple Glass” user to not be constrained to fixed physical gestures or touch controls, and instead manipulate any object to alter what is visible on the headset.
It’s already possible to use Apple’s See in AR app to show you a Mac Pro or an iPad Pro on your own desk before ever buying one. You can walk around a Lamborghini Huracan EVO Spyder car in the same way. You just can’t do anything with these virtual objects.
You can look, but you can’t touch and that’s fine, that’s even impressive. But as Apple AR becomes more part of our regular world, and as Apple integrates it with everything else it does, it becomes a problem.
