Default Apple buys AR glasses maker

Artificial innovation

Fruity cargo-cult Apple has acquired a startup focused on making lenses for augmented reality glasses.

It appears that Jobs' Mob wants to superimpose its reality on the real world and yet cannot find the talent or innovation within its own fly saucer to come up with the tech.

Apple confirmed it acquired Akonia Holographics but is saying nothing else.

The company was founded in 2012 by a group of holography scientists and had originally focused on holographic data storage before shifting its efforts to creating displays for augmented reality glasses.

Akonia said its display technology allows for “thin, transparent smart glass lenses that display vibrant, full-color, wide field-of-view images”. The firm has a portfolio of more than 200 patents related to holographic systems and materials, according to its website.
