Concept: “Apple Lens” is not afraid to be ridiculous - which is good

We’ve already seen some concepts for the rumored Apple smart glasses, which may or may not exist someday. None of them so far, however, has embraced the essentially ridiculous and dystopian idea that you have a technological piece complementing your vision at all times with information, contacts and – of course – advertising. So far.

The designer Antonio De Rosa today shared his own vision of what may be the infamous Apple glasses, which he called «Apple Lens». And, well, get ready for a show of extravagances: here we have different styles to please all tastes, from the little black dress up to a very opulent finish, imagined in partnership with the Louis Vuitton brand.

The concept would bring an A13 processor hidden in the frame, camera, touch sensitive surface for control and lenses that would display information to the user at all times privately – the person on the other side, therefore, could not see this interface. The designer also imagined an accessory that would transform them into sunglasses.

The “Apple Lens” would have a very interesting feature that, by incorporating augmented reality skills, would “extend” the screen of the iPhone, iPad or Mac in front of it – the glasses would recognize the device and display other screens next to or above the “real one” ”, Complementing the displayed content. We also have a “virtual cockpit” tool for people driving or cycling.

A «fitness mode» would measure the user’s body information during exercise, displaying data directly on the screens. Finally, the glasses would also have a new form of authentication: the Hand ID, with sensors (similar to the new LG G8, I believe) that would identify the system of veins of the user’s hand to authenticate access. Ah! In the author’s mind, “Apple Lens” would cost from $ 1,950.

For more «information», just go to the website that the designer created to imagine how Apple would promote its newest product. It was really a very thorough job – if it was to the customer’s taste, however, you will tell me.
