Apple buys NextVR which digitally broadcasts sports and music, It is the latest indication that the augmented reality and virtual reality headset are nearer to Apple.

Thursday’s Virtual Reality became a bit real, news that Apple purchased NextVR as a VR streaming company.

The company in California is best known for NBA and Wimbledon collaborations in broadcasting live sport from professional cameras to home headsets. The impact is to make people feel like they sit in luxury places and watch the game. NextVR also deals with the coverage of the 2016 presidential races and other discussions.

According to Startup tracker Crunchbase the next VR, founded in 2009, raised $115,5 million. Apple confirmed the news, saying that it “buys from time to time smaller technology companies and we don’t usually disclose our priorities or plans.” 9to5Mac and Bloomberg announced the acquisition earlier.

The purchase from Apple is the latest indication that the iPhone manufacturer is closer to displaying its augmented reality, and a virtual reality headset. The headset is supposed to use AR technology, which overlays real-world computer pictures and VR, which makes the brain believe that you are being transported to a computer system. More relevant, Apart from the iPhone in 2007, iPhone 2010 and Apple Watch 2014, it may be the next biggest product to reveal to Apple.

Moving Apple to headsets also would put Apple into deeper competition with Microsoft and Facebook, which are considered as market leaders for HoloLens and Oculus devices.

Microsoft’s most recent HoloLens 2 product, 2019, is a $3,500 camera headset, transparent screen, and Internet access through your phone. The device from Microsoft can add computer pictures to everything you look at, allowing firms to highlight tools they use when they learn, for example, to make reparations on a motor or to bring an expert worldwide to an oil platform, in order to help a worker solve a problem quickly.

Instead, Facebook’s Oculus get you up to the screen so that you can trick your brain into thinking you are in the world of machine generation. That means you can dive with huge blue whales, explore Chernobyl ruins or battle your way through an awesome dogfighting spaceship. Scott Stein, the general editor of the CNET party, called “The best thing I’ve been working for this year” Facebook’s $399 Oculus Quest Headset in 2019.

The ultimate decline in Apple’s headset is still unknown. The sales of smartphones and computers are still considered emerging markets for VR. Yet because of the coronavirus pandemic that causes millions of people to take up a shelter at home, experts suggest headset manufacturers should give us an escape or a better way to function.
