Apple supplier announces that it will begin manufacturing components for augmented reality devices… but for whom?

Not today we see speculation about a possible Apple device devoted especially to the experiences of augmented reality (AR) In fact, since Ma declared her love of technology and decided to make it a huge draw for its devices, rumors about an "Apple Glass" or something like that have been bubbling over the Internet. Now, the announcement of a partner from Cupertino comes to put more wood in this bonfire.

According to the Nikkei, the Taiwanese CEO Catcher Technology (which appeared here recently, cited as one of the companies that could possibly fabricate the next iPhones metal structures), Allen Horng, announced to investors and analysts at a financial results conference that the company will start manufacturing external parts for an augmented reality device. without specifying which partner they would be working on for the project.

Based on what we have learned, they (AR devices) need to be beautiful and light enough to use that makes the housings of these devices particularly difficult to manufacture, and so we still have many challenges to overcome.

The description of a “light and beautiful” product naturally raises the suspicion that Catcher's partner in the mission is Apple. Although nothing is confirmed, other rumors also reinforce this possibility, such as Ma's likely partnership with Carl Zeiss to develop such a device.

Whatever the answer to all this, it is certain that we will still have to wait a while before we can put the (possible) Apple Glass on our faces. And you, think a good idea?
